For the studies on the Overland Mail i like to request
the help of fellow philatelist. On this Pages will list documents i
would like to have as good quality copy. Some of the documents i have
already in my archive but in a quality which does not allow uploading it
Overland Mail Surcharge imposed by British Post: While it is known that the surcharge of 3d. was implemented on 23 November 1923, the last day this surcharge was required is not known to me. Who can provide these details, preferable proven by scans of the respective Postal announcement? The latest cover (franked with 8 1/2d registered rate, in my collection is dated 9 April 1932.
Iraq Report for 1929 H.S.M.O. reported in
1929 that 10 European Countries, including UK, USA and Switzerland have
abolished Overland Mail Surcharges. Which countries were this?
