Kenya & Uganda



FIRST STAMPS inscribed KENYA AND UGANDA 1 November 1922.



On becoming a colony on 23 July 1920 the East Africa Protectorate was renamed Kenya. After an experimental service in 1927 between Sudan and Lake Victoria had failed, the first regular airmail service (weekly) to East Africa was opened in February/March 1931, branching at Alexandria from the Imperial Airways route to India. This terminated at Mwanza (Tanganyika) until a Christmas proving flight of 1931 was followed in 1932 by a regular service through to South Africa.
