Well it's the same hand writing as my example, but it is not the hand writing of Saville Sheard if that is what you are asking.

I had always presumed it was the addressee sending it to herself. :D

Hi Brad,

Came across these two horse fdc's which postmarks you already have but perhaps the Royal cachet and no cachet might be of some interest.

Kind regards

Hi Cover2021

I am ok with the 1960 Melbourne Cup Royal postmarked GPO Perth fdi but I am interested in the no cachet 1978 Race Horses. Please put it aside for me. Still searching on the Challis fdcs.

A recent acquisition, although not first day, from a recent Brighton Philatelic Society auction:


Uncacheted cover with 1960 Melbourne Cup 5d stamp postmarked with Repat G H Heidelberg cds - 15th November 1960.

Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital opened on 13 March 1941 as the 115th Heidelberg Military Hospital. The 6th RAAF Hospital was also on site between 1942 and 1947.

In 1947, the hospital was handed over from the army to the Repatriation Commission and became the Repatriation General Hospital Heidelberg. The Commission (Department of Veterans' Affairs) ran the hospital until 1994.

Currently it is under the umberella of the Austin Hospital (Austin Health).

Yes please, I don't have Wodonga.

Thank you for finding that one for me.

Is there something I can look for you in return?

Ok, no problems.
I’ve got enough to keep me busy for now but thanks for asking.
I’ll have another look around tomorrow before I post probably on Monday.
Cheers
