The stamps of the occupation of postwar Japan…

Australians served in the British Commonwealth Occupation Force in Japan after victory in the Second World War, and to facilitate personal mail, the Australian Government issued ‘BCOF Japan 1946’ overprinted stamps from 1946 to 1949.

These official Australian predecimal stamps are highly sought after as a memento of the Second World War, and also as an interesting, distinctive part of Australia’s philatelic history. Very scarce today, we have the complete set of seven BCOF stamps in unused Mint Unhinged condition!
