No Postal Notice has been found so far for Saudi Arabia with reference to the Overland Mail, however, apparently 2 covers are known, carried by the Overland Mail. One of which is shown below.

Saudi Arabia, overland cover sent from Djedda on 11/7/1934 to Doha, Bahrain via Port Said. Franked by unperforated 3½ g and ½ g carity stamp. The red manuscript marking  "Tarik Sariah" (by Fast Road) must be understood as `Overland Mail`. On reverse Port Said transit Postmark dated 15/07/1934 and the hard to read Bahrain cancellation. Cover not in my collection.
