Thanks, Rod.

I'll answer your questions on the World Modern channel here as it may have a more general interest here.

The BSAP forum is now (since earlier this year) on Facebook. This is a private Group which, to be viewed, requires:
1) a Facebook account
2) then membership in the forum group (but not membership in BSAP).
I personally have avoided Facebook like the plague (or COVID-19) but BSAP tempted me to join. True to my expectations, after a week I found myself suspended for a month. I can reply to topics but can't create new topics. Facebook's support is non-existent: they have laid off nearly all their support staff. I did, however, find a thing call Support Inbox which, surprise, surprise, told me that I have no violations, so . . .

The BSAP group as of today only has 93 members so they don't generate a lot of messages but I think you would enjoy it as a new source.

Regarding BSAP proper, I joined in November. It's a good time to join as, because of the current pandemic situation, their normal GBP17 annual subscription will cover 2 years. They have an excellent monthly Newsletter which, to my mind, is itself worth the annual (let alone the special 2 year's) subscription. Back numbers are available on USB disk. They also have members' pricing for their publications. (They have an Australian agent for their publications so I believe Australian members will also have a big saving on postage.) An application for membership can be found on the BSAP website - BSAP.org.uk. Don't forget the ".uk" otherwise you will get the British South African Police association.

Regards,

Frank.

Thanks Al,
without ranking these marvellous studies,
would you recommend Ward ?

As the HG stationery Catalogue $75, I think it prudent to save my money, and invest in the more expensive Brusden White.
(I still would have liked that monograph)

In my blissful ignorance, I thought Id get all those books home for below $250
It turned out more like $450.

Rod,

WRT the Government Taxing Section, this was the answer given to a similar question on the Aussie forum.

Quote:
The 1/- Colombo was used as a postage due stamp. Postage due stamps were withdrawn in 1963. This stamp would have been precancelled and given to the delivery postman to use as a receipt. The other major use as a postage due stamp was for business reply post to cover the postage and fee. Often the stamps are mint (CTO) and found in blocks from paying larger accounts such as the reply paid. Used from ca 1960 to 1985, so it should be found on postage dues. It was used at the Perth Mail Exchange. Other capital city GPOs did a similar procedure but they used a normal steel CDS...

Rod I sent a copy of the "colombo plan" with that cancel to Dave Elsemore at Ozrevenuse .

So if you go to his site click on "Stamp News Articles" for Dec 2010

He was hinting at a new discovery .

Wow!
I have had that unidentified for 20 years.
You guys are amazing.
A German collector, finding that, I shake my head.

Thanks so much, Al, Postmaster.
