This is a comparatively rare destination, too.

Ratana Pa has about 400 residents and except for Ratana church events twice a year, is a town off the main drag that many would drive past without detouring or even being aware of its existence.

Thank you for that information Ken. :D

Continuing the theme of Cinderellas. The cover below shows the use of a Lady Gowrie Red Cross Appeal label. These labels were meant to be placed on the back of envelopes and not the front.

Great cover, and they were ABSOLUTELY not meant to be cancelled.

I've handled 100s of Gowries, and have never seen one with a dated cds cancel. Near all are mint or no gum.

At 3/- wildly overpaid -- strange choice of mega franking. One of each value (9d) would have covered correct post, most likely - 3d Reg'd fee, and a likey treble weight letter at 6d. :lol:

I acquired this one at the Brighton Philatelic Society Auction last night:
Souvenir cover by the Lord Howe Island Philatelic Study Group for the departure of the HMS Nottingham under tow with Courier Post Palm Labels cancelled with the LHI PSG cds in blue - August 6, 2002.
Souvenir cover by the Lord Howe Island Philatelic Study Group for the departure of the HMS Nottingham under tow with Courier Post Palm Labels cancelled with the LHI PSG cds in blue - August 6, 2002.
HMS Nottingham was a batch two Type 42 destroyer of the Royal Navy, named from the city of Nottingham, England. She was launched on 18 February 1980, and commissioned on 8 April 1983 as the sixth warship to bear the name.
HMS Nottingham
HMS Nottingham
On 6 August, Nottingham set out on her journey to the port of Newcastle, north of Sydney, towed stern-first because of the damage to her bow. In Newcastle, her Sea Dart missiles were removed and further repairs were carried out.

It was not clear whether it was economic to repair her, but Nottingham had recently undergone major modifications to her radar and other electronics, and it was determined that it would be less expensive to return her to the UK and repair her than to bring another Type 42 destroyer up to her new specification.

After arriving in Sydney on 15 October, the damaged ship was lifted on board the heavy lifting vessel MV Swan and welded to her deck for transport. On 28 October, Nottingham left Sydney harbour on board MV Swan for the journey back to the UK. By 9 December, she had arrived at Portsmouth Harbour for repairs at Fleet Support Limited. The destroyer Glasgow was temporarily reactivated to cover for Nottingham while she was being repaired.

On 7 July 2003, the anniversary of the collision, Nottingham was refloated.

I note that a Stampboarder from "up Upwey way" has one for sale:

Just spotted this one on eBay:
KGV 1d red postmarked Lord Howe Island
KGV 1d red postmarked Lord Howe Island
My understanding is that the KGV 1d red was issued on July 17, 1914, so this postmark predates the issue of the stamp by 5 months.

Hi!

Here are two recent finds with Lord Howe Island postmarks, but these are definitive genuine used examples! The postmarks are not the best strikes, but I expect strips of three KGV 1d redheads with genuine postally used Lord Howe Island postmarks are surely not all too common!

I don’t know when Lord Howe Island discontinued the dumb canceller, my latest dated cover, with dumb canceller, No. 5. 1915, is shown below.

A Lord Howe postcard with a Lord Howe cancel dated 24 April 1961?

An "INSUFFICIENT ADDRESS" handstamp has been placed on the item.

No wonder! There are no address details whatsoever.

Nor are there any senders details.

Interesting! The sender must have been so eager to share all the news that they forgot the address!

What would have happened to this postcard after it was stamped with "Insufficient address"? Would it have been sent back to L.H.I. or simply added to a bundle of unclaimed mail?

If there was any pre-sorting it may never have left LHI.

Perhaps all mail went to Sydney but I don’t know for sure.

By the way did you receive my email reply a few weeks ago?
