It appears to me, only South Australia used "Squared Circle" cancelling hammers.

Due to the size of the stamps of the period, full cancels are extremely scarce.

Australian Philatelists

William Reeve Rundell, sometimes Reeves, (10 July 1848 6 or 8 March 1936) was an Australian postal officer.

He was born in England but emigrated to Australia with his family while still a child. He obtained employment in the Victorian post office and was promoted to senior posts in Melbourne where he was in charge of post office records. He was also a philatelist, specialising in the stamps of Australia and the State of Victoria. He was a founder member and president of the Philatelic Society of Victoria and a life member of Sydney Philatelic Club. He signed the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists in 1924.

Rod222,
The Phoenix Auctions site has 'The Branch' as:
RO 1/11/1898; PO 1/2/1910; TO 1/2/1942; closed 31/10/1946.

There is an example (without image) listed in this catalogue - lot 1040:
https://issuu.com/ppa_david/docs/139

Some websites that refer to the history of 'The Branch' are:
https://www.newsofthearea.com.au/hi...karuah-17828
https://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/7497409
https://www.gloucesteradvocate.com....ries-wanted/
https://www.stroudhistoricalsociety...ouds-history

From the 3rd website above:
The area was originally part of a one million acre grant of land belonging to the Australian Agricultural Company (AA Co), covering an area from Port Stephens to the Manning River.

The Branch came into its own in the 1890s when a sawmill was built by Les and Bob Davies.
It thrived and grew to about 30 houses, complete with its own school, church and community hall.
The mill was the main source of work, although other businesses came there as well, such as a blacksmith and a wheelwright.

Goodness me !

Thank you very much.

I'll send to the webmaster, and see if they are aware of any Post Office
pics etc.

I believe Karuah? was 20km from the Ned Kelly saga
I'll have to check.


Timber was transported from the mill by light rail (timber tramway) to town of The Branch which was a similar size to Simsville. River steamers berthed at The Branch and carried the timber to Port Stephens and beyond.

"The Branch" entymology, perhaps due to the fork in the local roads, thoroughfares.

The The Branch River in east New South Wales starts below Girvan at an elevation of 61.1m and ends merging with the Karuah River.

The The Branch River drops around 62m over its 27.2km length.

The following creeks and rivers flow into the The Branch River: Blue Gum Creek, Little Branch Creek, Kelly Creek, Boomerang Creek and Lewis Creek.

Australia Post suspends sea mail amid rise in prohibited items
https://www.9news.com.au/national/a...be7ca59338ef

An Australia Post spokesperson told The Guardian that they are in the "process of reviewing its sea mail capacity".
"Australia Post is still processing sea mail containers in transit at the time the suspension was announced, and there remains no impact to mail items being sent by air to Australia or items being sent by sea from Australia," the spokesperson said.
"The increase in sea mail volume was a direct result of Covid air restrictions and decreased aircraft capacity."
