Bushire, a city on the southwestern coast of Iran on the Persian Gulf, has long been of interest to stamp collectors. During their 1915 occupation, the British issued postage stamps using the Coronation issue of Persia overprinted "BUSHIRE Under British Occupation". The occupation lasted from 8 August to 16 October, when it was terminated by agreement with the Persian government.
