The stamps and philately of South West Africa
This country was originally a German colony know as German South West Africa; during the First World War it was occupied by South African forces and the unoverprinted issues of South Africa were used - these being known as 'forerunner' issues. The first stamps overprinted 'South West Africa' were issued on 1st January 1923 and the name 'South West Africa' was used until independence in 1990 when the country changed its name to Namibia.
