Mafeking to Gubulawayo Runner Post

Mafeking to Gubulawayo Runner Post Souvenir Sheet

The se-tenant design of the four stamps in this set combine
to map the route of the Mafeking to Gubulawayo runner post.

The initiation of the Mafeking to Gulbulawayo Runner Post on August 7, 1888 coincided with the issue of the first stamps for Bechuanaland Protectorate. From June 1890-1897 it used stamps of British Bechuanaland before resuming the use of its own stamps in 1897. These were replaced with issues for Botswana on September 30, 1966.
