Flag of Papua New Guinea

The former territory of New Guinea and the colony of Papua were consolidated as an Australian trust territory under the United Nations in 1946. The civil administration was resumed earlier than this and was completely operative from July 1946. The name was changed to Papua New Guinea in 1972 and the territory became self-governing on 5 December 1973. Independence was granted on 10 September 1975.

When the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force occupied German New Guinea in 1914, it met the need for postage stamps by overprinting existing stocks of the (unwatermarked) German New Guinea and Marshall Islands stamps with "G.R.I" (short for Georgius Rex Imperator, referring to the current British King George V. Values ranged from one penny to five shillings, and roughly corresponded with the values of the original stamps expressed in pfennigs: 1d on 3pf and 5pf stamps, 2d on 10pf and 20pf, and so forth.   The Australians issued a first setting of the overprint on 17 October 1914, followed by a second setting (with slightly different spacing) on 16 December. In all, the produced some 50 distinct stamps.   In addition, Australian postal authorities pressed registration labels into service as 3d stamps, overprinted in the same way as the others. Labels of the Friedrich Wilhelmshaven, Herbertshohe, Kawieng, Kieta, Manus, and Rabaul post offices became overprinted in this manner.  In 1915 the Australians superseded these improvised stamps of New Britain with stamps of the "North West Pacific Islands".  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Britain
