Over the last couple of months, Waffle has been showering me with covers and stamps:
Waffle 1.jpg
Waffle 2.jpg
Waffle 3.jpg
Waffle 6.jpg
He sent me a couple of King Charles birthday FDCs but wrote the wrong postal code on the envelope. The letter was returned to him, but Canada Customs cut the envelope open to check the contents and in the process damaged the 2 FDCs. :roll: Bad form on their part.
Waffle 4.jpg
Waffle 5.jpg
KCII FDCs.jpg
Waffle used very attractive franking and all hand canceled, but a couple of the covers were vandalised by the posties - luckily with crayon that I've been able to mostly erase from the stamps themselves (you can see traces of the black pencil on the envelopes).

Thank you so much for all these David! I will sort out what I need and pass the rest on to our club. :D :D

Hi Marco,

Are these stamps/postcards still available somewhere. I have not been able to find them either in ebay or delcampe. I would really appreciate any suggestions / guidance on where to get them from.
