Information
A term for various British Post Offices throughout MOROCCO, and in the
Spanish Zone, French Zone and International Zone of Tangier. Stamps were issued
between 1898-1957. Prior to that (from 1857) stamps of Great Britain were in use.
Morocco's strategically position as a gateway to Western Europe made it a target
for various European Powers which were looking for a foothold in northern
Africa. British Post Offices in Morocco were administrated by Gibraltar Post
Office until 1906 and used Gibraltar stamps overprinted `MOROCCO AGENCIES`.
Since 1907 Great Britain stamps overprinted `MOROCCO AGENCIES` were in use and
valid also in the Spanish, French and International zones surcharged by local
currency. British P.O. in Tangier used British stamps with the overprint
`Tangier` from 1927. Although Tangier was no longer an international zone in
1956, the British P.O. was closed only in 1957.
