botswana-plane-1966-issue

Hello, These past few days I have been sorting and listing Bechuanaland and Botswana to the online store.  I came across this stamp. I hope you enjoy seeing it.

It is from the 1966 Independence Issue (interesting political history I might add)  and it is one of a set of 4. This is SG 204 and shows a Botswana National Airways DC3. The  airline was  just Bechuanaland National Airways renamed after Independence. It did not last long, going bankrupt in 1969 and then being acquired by the Government and renamed Botswana Airways Corporation which in turn fail around 1971. But that is another story and history of the airline industry in South Africa back in this days in general perhaps!

Enjoy your stamps and please remember, if you have gaps in your British Commonwealth collection do try cddstamps just once. You might become a regular visitor to our online store like many others. Visit here for all the countries we have in the store
