I thought it was interesting to show that the PNG Post Office used the same machine slogan cancels that the Australian Post Office used. :D

Whilst writing a follow-up article on a very rare early New Guinea Stephansort wax seal I wondered whether the date on the front of the cover (1st March 1915) could possibly be the earliest known date for SG01 of New Guinea. The overprint was issued on Saturday 27th February 1915.

I already had in my collection an OS GRI 1d on 3pf Brown and checked the date. Lo and behold it was a first day commercial cover!!!!

I illustrate it here for want of a better place to put it. It is New Guinea and it is a First Day Cover although dating 107 years ago.

This was invoiced above estimate at $A1,550 today.

''10/- Map (SG.14) very rare solo franking tied by 'Wewak' datestamp to 1955 (Apr.2) airmail cover to USA, Wewak Catholic Mission sender’s endorsement on flap.''

https://auctions.leski.com.au/lot-details/index/catalog/575/ ... tnum%3D756

This material is wildly under-rated. Bought an envelope of 1950s on piece from a Catholic priest that had values up to 10/- and £1 a while back that I was very pleased to secure .. now to find it again in the rubble here! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Special pictorial postmark for "Operation Drake" Port Moresby PNG - 24th October 1979
Operation Drake (1978–1980) was a round-the-world voyage with the participation of young people from many countries, sailing in the brigantine Eye of the Wind. She left Plymouth in October 1978 and returned to London two years later, in December 1980.

Named after Sir Francis Drake, who had circumnavigated the world four hundred years before on the Golden Hind, Operation Drake was divided into nine ocean- and one land-based phases, each lasting about 3 months. On each phase, a number of Young Explorers aged between seventeen and twenty-four, selected from countries all over the world, worked together on serious scientific exploration, research and community projects.

The expedition was mounted by the Scientific Exploration Society, and the expedition leader was Colonel John Blashford-Snell. Charles, Prince of Wales was the Patron of Operation Drake.
