Libyan Meharsiti

Libyan Meharsiti is an Italian term for the very skillful or "The best of the best" Camel Riders that were known to handle the desert. The word Meharsiti comes from the southern Libyan region Mahara.


In 1942, a set of Postal Due Stamps ("segnatasse" in Italian) was prepared to be issued after the Meharisit. It would have been Libya J 25-36 but because of the war it was never handled by the postal service in Libya.
