Description

WWI/OETA Palestine era (Occupied Enemy Territory Administration) 1918-1920 military postal souvenir: unused picture postcard of "Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee", an artistic replica of a photograph, printed on uncredited bisected postal stationary titled "Post Card" and with sub-heading "Souvenir of the occupation of Palestine by the British troops"; the caption is in English and French, probably reflecting the only two Allied powers in the area at the time and the fact that both were part of the OETA. The OETA was established during the final weeks of World War I, on 23 October 1918 following the Sinai and Palestine Campaign, and ended following the assignment of the British Mandate for Palestine at the April 1920 San Remo conference. Not illustrated/mentioned in Aizenberg.
