Falkland Islands and Dependencies George the 6th Postage Stamp Overprints

Postage stamps of the Falkland Islands and Dependencies were issued in 1944 with a red overprint (Dependency Of) for South Georgia, South Shetlands, South Orkneys and Graham Land (with bolder lettering). The values were 1 halfpenny (black and green), 1 penny (black and violet), 2 penny (black and carmine-red), 3 penny (black and blue), 4 penny (black and purple), sixpence (black and brown), ninepence (black and grey-blue), 1 shilling (deep blue). Values and colours were the same for all Dependencies with the red overprint identifying their origin. Below are illustrations of some of these values and overprints. The first illustration shows the watermark used.
