With so many similarly coloured stamps with the same design, there were many cases of denominations getting mixed up. To solve this problem, in 1940 several of the higher valued stamps were overprinted with their value in black.

Although all values were authorised for postal use, the 35 shilling surcharge was not typically used for postage. For simplicity, this catalogue lists only those stamps that were postally used on a regular basis.
