As a Norfolk Island fdc collector & an autograph collector were these signatures done by the signatories on a visit to Norfolk Island?

There was a visit of the VC winners to Norfolk Island in the 1990s, special postmark & many signed covers for the event. Was your cover signed during a similar event :?:

Hi Brad,

Many thanks for your question.

Unfortunately there is nothing more on or in the cover to give a clue as to why this particular country cover was chosen? I had hoped for an insert which may offer a further explanation but there is nothing more than a short bio extract on each winner.

Hope another member here can maybe shed some light on this?

Best wishes

Mike
