Air mail to and from the Somaliland Protectorate
Copied from Vaccari News:
A new book, Air mail to and from the Somaliland Protectorate by Imperial Airways and Ala Littoria – December 1935 to August 1936, was released by Germain Mentgen, who had updated and integrated his previous works in 82 pages. Published by the Aden & Somaliland Study Group, the book is written in English and costs 42,00 euros.
It addresses the postal communication during the period in question to and from the Italian Protectorate of Somalia via the two airlines that covered the territory, with a variety of photos, maps, routes, timetables, various documents, and colour reproductions of covers. Of great importance is the “The Red Arrow”, a three-weekly flight direct service between Rome, Syracuse, and Tripoli (Bengasi) or between Rome, Naples, Syracuse, Malta, and Tripoli.
