This is an odd cover. It is not an advertising cover and is somewhat tatty but, interesting nonetheless.

I can only assume it was sent from an employee of the Red Rose Tea / Coffee Company. One of the many different types of clubs during the war.

Interesting... I wonder how that is supposed to benefit stamp collectors?

Right jamesw

Drink more coffee and intake more caffein. That way, you can't sleep, so, you spend those hours working on your stamps.

I guess Red Rose has always liked its gimmicks. They still put those little china figurines (animals etc) in boxes of their teabags...

Maybe you could send in a certain number of coupons and get a packet of stamps? Then when you took the kids to the grocery they'd squirm and fidget and whine until you bought the "right" brand of coffee.

This cover was obviously creased and crushed by the canceling machine, notice the spaces in the CDS and flag.

Wow -- 22crows -- that was an impressive find. Did you do a specific search into archived newspapers, or did it just show up in a general Google search? Either way, impressive!

22crows is my chief researcher,
but she never gives away her brilliant search techniques,
she doesn't ask for a raise either :)

While recycling more paper, I stumbled across this little booklet.

It ties in some with the stamp promotions etc. It is a small catalogue published by the Red Rose Tea Company and it has only 46 pages.

Unfortunately, there isn't a year on it we can go by but, it is fairly old by the paper toning.

I have scanned the front and back covers and the middle pages as well. A lot of the listings within were mainly British colonies and Commonwealth nations but other foreign stamps were listed as well.
