Thanks for checking your collection, Winnie.

I am only interested in purchasing a cover with the Olympex postmark of 12 November as shown in the above illustration.

Glen, I realized the postmark was dated 22 but the buyer wanted 12, so I deleted the picture and tried to delete the text, but I just found I couldn't do it so I just put the picture back.

Addressed to John Gower - who started Wesley so a keen FDC collector might be interested anyway!

tonga2, this is the correct postmark The Nightwatchman is looking for but the incorrect date:

Image
Registered Olympex Souvenir cover in brown & green with Olympex Torch runner pictorial postmark, in black, 21st November 1956
Image
APM #1205 - from Olympex Exhibition, Melbourne to Sylvan, Victoria

And here is the right date but the wrong colour, red instead of black:

APM #1205

Time for a bump on this thread.

I keep my eyes open for Olympex covers but alas my latest find was 11 days out.

Noel requires the cover dated 12 Nov 1956 as per the opening post.
