Non Philatelic post.
Had my first Earthquake here in Western Australia today.
I always said, if that happened I run for the bathroom, or hide under the desk.
Reality, I did nothing, just stood there wondering what the hell was happening.
All's well.

It must have been very unnerving. I'm very glad to hear you're alright

Nice words, thank you Crispin.
On a world scale of earthquakes, just a blip on the radar.
But it brings to mind, we are on a blob of boiling rock, with a crust, hurtling through space...

Meter markings.

Last letters:
The mysterious kindness behind Australia's most violent postal delivery

A 'random act of kindness'
But one puzzling question remains: why did the notoriously brutal Imperial Japanese Army organise the letter drop?
Ms Langner says it was set in motion by a Japanese private after a random act of kindness by a group of Australian soldiers.
Kokichi Nishimura supervised a POW work detail in Rabaul which cleaned and repaired weapons. He learned from his Australian captives about an unusual act of wartime chivalry.

The day before Rabaul fell, the Australians had shot down a Japanese bomber, killing all its crew.
The dead Japanese airmen were given a proper and respectful burial by the Australians.
Nishimura determined to repay this act of humanity. He lobbied his superiors to undertake the air drop of letters and amazingly, they agreed.
