Cameroun

 

The German colony of Kamerun was occupied by French and British forces during World War I. Southern Cameroons became part of Nigeria but the remainder was administered by France until 1960 as Cameroun.

 

During the FWW occupation period, the French issued stamps of Gabon overprinted Corps Expeditionnaire Franco–Anglais CAMEROUN; and stamps of Middle Congo overprinted CAMEROUN Occupation Francaise. After the war, the Middle Congo stamps were simply overprinted CAMEROUN. The first issues specifically for Cameroun were produced in 1925. Cameroun became an independent republic in 1960 and, following a plebiscite, Southern Cameroons was reunited with it.
