South Georgia is a dependency of the Falkland Islands.
From July 17, 1963 to May 5, 1980 South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands used stamps inscribed "South Georgia".
Only one set of stamps was printed by the Format Printers during this time period with the south Georgia inscription.

1976 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF THE "DISCOVERY"
Scott #44-7 SG #46-9
Interestingly Scott Catalog describes the stamps as the 25th anniversary which is wrong.
