Since my previous article Hejaz: The First Postage Stamps of 1916 and T.E. Lawrence in The London Philatelist (Ref.1) some further information has come to light. The Royal Philatelic Collection contains a number of imperforate proof sheets for the 1916 issue. These are listed in Wilson (Ref.2) and include the 1 piastre in blue with the following manuscript notes in the right hand margin in red ink and initialled “TEL” by T E Lawrence.
