WWI Centennial Buyall - 2014 Samoa Complete Mint Set of 4 and Commemorative Sheet

At the start of World War I, Samoa was a German possession during Germany’s brief attempt to build a colonial empire. In 1914, New Zealand troops landed in the poorly defended Samoa and claimed it for Britain, making it one of the first territories gained during the war. This interesting set shows actual photographs of the annexation. (Samoa #1191-95)
