Yugoslavia - Trieste B stamps
P=have O=don’t have it
Following the Peace Treaty signed
on February 10, 1947, there were modifications in the Trieste zone: a part of the Territory which was under the Anglo-American control,
included Gorizia, was given back to Italy,
while almost the whole of Istria, part of the Anglo-American zone,
and the cities Fiume and Pola
were assigned to Yugoslavia. Furthermore, it was
determined that the "Free Territory of Trieste" be divided into an
"A zone", which included Trieste and the coastal band situated
between Duino and Albaro Vescovà, to be under Anglo-American administration;
and "B zone", which included the north-west side of Istria, to be under Yugoslav administration.
Both the administrations used their own stamps. The Anglo-American
administration used Italian stamps after applying the overprint "AMG -
FTT" (Allied Military Government - Free Territory Trieste). In the "B zone" special
stamps made for Trieste were used, as well as Yugoslavian stamps with
overprint; all showed the legend or overprint "STT - VUJA" (Free
Territory Trieste - Yugoslav Army Military Administration). Since 1952, in the
second part of the abbreviation includes "N" ("Popular",
referring to the Army).
On October 1954, the "A zone"
was made once again part of the Italian territory, while the "B zone"
became part of Yugoslavia.
