The authorities on the neighboring island of St. Helena, some 1,400 miles to the north-east, started a Relief Fund, and a supply of Tristan da Cunha stamps were surcharged "ST. HELENA Tristan Relief" with an amount for the fund. Unfortunately only the Colonial Office in London could authorize new stamps, a fact clearly unknown to the Governor, and the issue was withdrawn after only one week. These are among the rarest of modern stamps as only 434 sets were sold)

By February 1943, the last German and Italian soldiers were driven from Libya and the Allied occupation of Libya began. Tripolitania and Cyrenaica remained under British administration, while the French controlled Fezzan. In 1944, emir Idris returned from exile but declined to resume permanent residence in Cyrenaica until the removal of foreign control. Disposition of Italian colonial holdings was a question that had to be considered before the peace treaty officially ending the war with Italy could be completed. Technically, Libya remained an Italian possession administered by Britain and France. In 1949, the Emirate of Cyrenaica was created and only Tripolitania remained under direct British military administration. A year later, in 1950, it was granted civil instead of military administration. Idris as-Senussi, the Emir of Cyrenaica and the leader of the Senussi Muslim Sufi order, represented Libya in the UN negotiations, and on 24 December 1951, Libya declared its independence)

It was part of the Allied administration of Libya. Free French forces from French Chad occupied the area that was the former Italian Southern Military Territory in 1943] and made several requests to annex administratively their Fezzan to the French colonial empire. The administrative personnel retained the former Italian bureaucrats. The British administration began the training of a badly needed Libyan civil service. Italian administrators continued to be employed in Tripoli and the Italian legal code remained in effect for the duration of the war. In the lightly populated Fezzan region, a French military administration formed a counterpart to the British operation. With British approval, Free French forces moved north from Chad to take control of the territory in January 1943. French administration was directed by a staff stationed in Sabha, but it was largely exercised through Fezzan notables of the family of Sayf an Nasr. At the lower echelons, French troop commanders acted in both military and civil capacities according to customary French practice in the Algerian Sahara. In the west, Ghat was attached to the French military region of southern Algeria and Ghadames, the French command of southern Tunisia, eventually giving rise to Libyan nationalist fears that French intentions might include the ultimate detachment of Fezzan from Libya. Fezzan joined Tripolitania and Cyrenaica to form the Kingdom of Libya on 24 December 1951. It was the first country to achieve independence through the United Nations and one of the first former European possessions in Africa to gain independence)
