Centenary of International Telecommunications Union

3/05/2012     General

The 1965 I.T.U. Centenary gave rise to stamp issues from many countries, including most British and French Colonies. The French omnibus issue (designed by J.Combet) depicts the 'Syncom' communications satellite, plus Telegraph Poles and a Morse Key.

Undoubtedly the key stamp for collectors is the French Southern and Antarctic Territories (T.A.A.F.) stamp.
