EEF First Interim Period: Civilian Stampless and Prepaid Mail: November 1917- November 1918

This presentation deals with some of the rarest postal history in Holy Land philately. It shows civilian free mail sent between mid-November 1917 and mid February 1918. The presentation then discusses the civilian mail sent during the period in which a "prepaid mail" system was used (mid February to mid July 1918) when only 3 Army Post Offices had postage stamps for civilians to use when sending their mail. Prepaid mail covers sent from various army post offices will be featured.
