Hi Rfw125,

I believe this is a postmark from Glasgow in Scotland.

The stamp was presumably posted on a Canadian ship and handed in to a post office in Glasgow and given the PAQUEBOT / POSTED AT SEA machine postmark.

Bingo!
Slogan Postmark UNLISTED in the database
Nice find!

Currently 427 different GLASGOW postmarks listed, yours would be 428

The flower stamp is from a Canadian "domestogramme" aerogramme / air letter sheet.

I believe there was a different flower design for each Canadian province and territory.

Here's a link showing a complete one:

1st one has got the Royal Train post office on the postmark.
and the second one I assume is just a slogan

Hi Rod,

"V for Victory" always makes me think of the old BBC recording made by the great percussionist James Blades that was used so often on broadcasts to occupied Europe.

I've heard it many times over the years, I guess usually in documentaries about the war, but I've just spent 30 minutes trying to find a recording online and sadly failed!

Hi Nigel,

Not come across this gentleman prior, I may recognise his voice
on hearing it. All news to me.

I do however, recall with great clarity, the muscled gentleman, smashing the gong
at the beginning of the Rank Organisation films
Unforgettable!


Quote:
His most famous and widely heard performances were the sound of the drum playing "V-for-Victory" in Morse code, the introduction to the BBC broadcasts made to the European Resistance during World War II, and providing the sound of the gong seen at the start of films produced by the Rank Organisation. Blades played this sound on a tam-tam. On screen Blades's sound was mimed to by the "Gongman".
