A rather nice-looking registered cover from 1905, from Orange River Colony to Germany via London.

Mixed franking on uprated postal stationery.

Registered fdc for "1d purple Marriage of Princess Elizabeth", from Williamstown Central to Williamstown. What I thought was interesting is it is addressed "HMAS Lonsdale 2". "HMAS Lonsdale" was an RAN training base in Port Melbourne, across the other side of Hobsons Bay. I can find no relationship between HMAS Lonsdale & Williamstown nor can I find a HMAS Lonsdale 2.
Image
Brad,

HMAS Lonsdale II was a training establishment in Williamstown.

Refer to this Trove link: https://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/page/6751875

In short the very brief article says: Once more HMAS Lonsdale II the old training establishment of Williamstown, has resumed reserve training for the Navy.

A couple of recently received registered covers:

From Kharkiv, Ukraine

and

Image
From Riga, Latvia.

I really like the second cover as the stamp would appear to have been issued specifically to pay the registered rate to a European country. Can anyone confirm if this is indeed the case?

Miller was renamed from Green Valley on 1st January 1973. Although according to PPA it had been known as Miller prior to 19th November 1964, when it was renamed Green Valley. I may have to look further a field for more info on Miller.

Registration label number 1 from the renaming of Miller from Green Valley dated 2nd January 1973 (Post Office would have been closed for New Years Day public holiday on 1st January).

It is a good example of the Aust Post policy now, not allowing the use of stamps to pay for the Registration service. I do think it unusual for the "Ormond Paid" cancel to be used to cancel stamps.

I think Aust Post didn't like the use of "old" stamps being used for registration, so they ruled that stamps could not be used to pay for a "service". Hence you pay cash for the registration label or the stampless registration envelope. They have to try to make a profit somehow :roll:

Yes philatelic but interesting nonetheless because Deutsche Post has added a registration sticker to a piece which was apparently not (intended to be) registered when it was posted. Very difficult for items posted on board ship, I imagine, unless there was a PO on board which wasn't usual.

Can't see any reason why it would have been 'Registered from other country'.

Ahoj norvic!

The sender has endorsed it 'registered letter' above the address so perhaps the purser received the appropriate payment and presented it to the South African or German authorities when handing over the mail.

I think MPF = Mail Processing Facility.

I think R(Railway)PO equates to our TPO - in both Canada and the US

Mail Processing sounds a better fit.

In the US they have more than just RPOs.
http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3799&start=100
"Here in the "states" we do not technically have TPO's. They have been named MPO's (Mobile Post Offices) which are made of rail, truck, mule, whatever 'moves'. RPO's are rail post offices, HPO are truck/bus post offices, and the rest are MPO's. Bob"

A Reistered cover from the self serve facility at Box Hill Central. (2015)

The Registered Label does not bear any tracking numbers, although there are some numbers on the lable. The tracking numbers are in the white lable.

Registered packet sent from Alderly Edge (UK) on July 28, 1892 and arriving in Oxford the following day (a distance of approximately 150 miles/240 kilometers). In addition to the Alderly Edge postmark, the face bears a 1p lilac (16 dot) Queen Victoria (Scott 89; 1881), a Manchester Registered CDS, and a pencil notation "fee 2d." Information gleaned from an earlier post in this thread indicates that the inland registration compensation limits shown on the reverse went into effect in 1891.

It does, actually -- the confusing thing here is that the "SW1" is a London district (and which became the first part of the postcode when they were introduced), and the "SW14" is a separate identifier for the sub-office as used on registration labels.

So basically Buckingham Gate in the SW1 district was office number 14 within the London SW area, according to whatever system of allocating numbers London SW used at the time (head offices could decide for themselves).
