Following the murder of an Italian official on the Greek island of Corfu, Italian troops occupied the island from 31st August 1923 until 27th September. There were two sets of overprints, Sc-N1-8 (SG1-8) and SC-N9-14 (SG9-14). Not all the stamps were issued as supplies did not reach the island before the troops had left.
