Aviation (VI)



The Hawker Sea Fury was a British fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by Hawker. It was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy, and also one of the fastest production single piston-engined aircraft ever built.[3] Developed during the Second World War, the Sea Fury entered service two years after the war ended. The Sea Fury proved to be a popular aircraft with a number of overseas militaries, and was used during the Korean War in the early 1950s.

March, my friend, you are doing a wonderful job of sharing with us online. You reach far more people interested in maximaphily by exhibiting online, rather than offline in exhibitions.

OWNEY



A nice and emotional story on a maximum card !

A stray mutt wandered into an Albany, New York post office in 1888 and eventually became the unofficial mascot of the Railway Mail Service. He rode with mail bags on trains across the country, protecting precious cargo along the way. Railway mail clerks attached medals and tags to his collar to record the dog's travels and in 1895 Owney traveled with mailbags on steamship to Asia and across Europe. The story of Owney is told in the exhibition "Mail by Rail", in the National Postal Museum gallery "Moving the Mail"
