Located at the end of a short Railway branch line to Kirkuk. However, this station / halt puzzles me.
After World War II the Iraq Petroleum Company opened their branch at Kirkuk in January 1947. Now, how can this be a railway station with an post office as being announced in the Iraq Post Office Guide 55 from 1930 when the railway branch line opened only in 1947?
I assume that the I.P.C. Camp had an post Office and was using railway stamps. The letters were canceled at the post office and forwarded to the nearest railway station which was Kirkuk.
