Italian Trans-Juba was established in 1924, after Britain ceded a portion of Jubaland to Italy as a reward for the Italians having joined the Allies in World War I. The territory thereafter had a brief existence as Trans-Juba (Oltre Giuba) under governor Corrado Zoli (16 July 1924 – 31 December 1926). Italy issued its first postage stamps for the new colony on 29 July 1925, consisting of contemporary Italian stamps overprinted Oltre Giuba. Britain retained control of the southern half of the partitioned Jubaland territory, which was later called the Northern Frontier District (NFD). In 1925, a year after its formation, Trans-Juba was integrated into Italian Somaliland.
