Great thread. Good to see the covers and postal history.

The 1965 - 1970 ones very interesting with postage dues on them as the Rhodesian stamps were not recognised!
1940s Southern Rhodesia set
1940s Southern Rhodesia set
One of my complete sets - 1937 Coronation and 1938 Definitives.
1953 set Southern Rhodesia
1953 set Southern Rhodesia
My 1953's are only missing the top value

UPDATE, these are old photos - I have the £ stamp but not the 10 bob.

Are you going to do Zimbabwe, as I have most of that country to 1993.

I'll be keeping on going until I run out. Just not today. I've got 3 albums of covers from there and haven't finished the first one yet.
