A new book has been published by the Stuart Rossiter Trust titled IRAQ POSTAL HISTORY 1920s to 1940s. It contains 328 pages and costs the equivalent of £38 plus postage. The main purpose of this book is to make sense of the airmail fees charged on airmail sent from Iraq to all other countries of the world in the period 1933 to 1946.
