South Africa Newspaper Wrapper used in SwazilandFrom 1910 till the end of December 1932 South Africa stamps and postal stationery were available for use in Swaziland.
South Africa newspaper wrappers were first made available in 1913. The Union of South Africa came into being on 31 May 1910 through the unification of four colonies - Cape of Good Hope, Natal, Transvaal and Orange Free State. Existing postal stationery of all the former colonies became valid for use in any part of the Union.
To my knowledge this is the only known example of a South Africa newspaper wrapper used in Swaziland, as illustrated here. I would certainly be most interested to hear from anyone who may have or may know of any other copy or copies of similar items.
This wrapper is postmarked Mbabane on 19 November 1932.
