Iraq
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
278   imageIraq, The Extraordinary Barry Scott Exhibit, "The Royal Air Force Desert Air Service" Collection. The superb, meticulously assembled collection magnificently presented and profusely annotated on 122 exhibition pages. The exhibit traces the development of the RAF's military air services in the Middle East, beginning after the Government's Colonial Office conference in March 1921, until the Imperial Airways take-over of mail services in January 1927. In addition, there is a powerful section of early Special and Emergency airmail flights, commencing in 1917 and extending to July 1921, which include the June 12, 1921 "Royal Flying Corps" cover (1 of 3 known), the 1919 flight between Baghdad and Cairo (1 of 23 known), the March repeat flight (1 of 7 known), fascinating coverage of the various 1919-1921 emergency flights resulting from the 1919 Civilian General Strike, the May 1919 civil disturbances and the May 1920-July 1921 Arab Revolt--including four different examples, each quite rare, of different flights from that conflict.

Beginning with the July 28, 1921, proving trial first flight, and chronologically continuing through dispatch 137, the final RAF flight prior to the Imperial Airways takeover, a great majority of dispatches are presented and documented, including way more than a handful which offer existing examples of between 2 and 20 of each.

Unlike much of Aerophilately, which is supremely well documented, relatively little is known of these early RAF flights, which spanned the 550 miles of desert between Cairo and Baghdad. What is certain is that this was a critical link in the establishment of the Empire air route from England to India and beyond.

Much of the highly detailed information is the result of the personal study and research of the exhibitor, Mr. Barry Scott.

Uncommon and significant items notwithstanding, unequivocally the exhibit is a keepsake work of art.

Be sure to view the entire collection as it appears on the Web.
Estimate $15,000 - 20,000

A recent publication by the Royal Philatelic Society of London states that the reason for so few covers with the overprinted "BAGHDAD IN BRITISH OCCUPATION" is that the stamps were sold out in just 17 days after going on sale !!!! Also the reason for so few covers with these overprinted issue is that only the stocks found at the civilian post offices in Iraq were overprinted, hence the rarity of these covers. This would account for the scarcity of such covers and why so few are known today. It took 14 years to form this collection, as many of the flights carying the mails do not have examples today. The main reason for this fact is that many of the covers were "official" and thus were disposed of by the OHMS dept. mail clerks.
