I would appreciate any information regarding the cinderella below.
Apparently issued in Australia by what roughly translates to as the 'Panhellenic Committee for Assistance and Rehabilitation of Cyprus' shortly after it was created in 1974 just after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.
Although I have tried contacting several Greek and Cypriot organisations is Australia I haven't had much luck.

Vayolene.The organisation responsible for this cinderella is PEVAK (acronym in Latin characters)loosely translated as the 'Panhellenic Committee for Assistance and Rehabilitation of Cyprus' which was established in Australia in 1974.

Although the green and white was used just after the war in Cyprus for a very short period of time and resembled the generic blue and white picture shown in your link,this is however the only cinderella with a 'face value' that I have seen in either green and white or blue and white.

I would be most interested if any members have any other such similar cinderellas to show in this thread

Rod222. I have contacted the seller. His reply below:

'Sorry but no real idea who actually made this but I know it is Australian hence the 20c donation
Cheers
CC'

As with any country with expats, we have groups protesting over a range of issues.
Certainly we have hosted protests from this group, but whence the cinderellas came from, can only be confirmed from the people whom organised the issue.
They may have been produced in Cyprus and mailed over, or whatever.
Confirmation must come from your research / enquiries.

With your approval, I can send to my Cinderella club for broadcast, no results can be guaranteed.

Rod that would be great thanks.
I have tried getting in touch with some ex-pat organisations in Australia but drew a blank, so any help from your end would be greatly appreciated.

Moose,

Now out of my hands, if it is published, I'll post.
