To quote Gibbons "By the Sino-Soviet Treaty of 1945,
Port Arthur (Lushun) was to be used jointly as a naval base by China and
the Soviet Union, and Dairen (Dalian) was to be a free port, with half the
installations leased to the Soviet Union. China was to have the civil administration
of both places".
"The Liaoning Postal Administration was established April
1st, 1946, in accordance with the Sino-Soviet Treaty, but was renamed one
week later, the Port Arthur and Dairen Postal Administration. On April 3rd,
1947, it was combined with telecommunications and renamed the Kwantung Post
and Telegraph General Administration. On May 1st, 1949, the name was again
changed to Port Arthur and Dairen Post and Telegraph Administration. Postal
tariffs were based on local currency and both Manchukuo and Japanese stamps
were overprinted for use."
The following stamp was issued August 15th, 1946 to celebrate
