TYPE 6 (DOUBLE-RING CDS WITH 'VICTORIA' AT BASE: Largely superb strike of 8AP15 tying Kangaroos 2d grey (probably Second Wmk) & First Wmk 3d olive (Cat $600 on cover) to cover to Buckinghamshire, flap removed. From 1911, the Empire rate was 1d per Żoz & the late fee was a flat 1d. This suggests that the item weighed between 1Żoz & 2oz = 4d + 1d late fee. However, it's perhaps more likely that the rate paid was 1d x2 + 3d registration, but there may have been no registration facilities available on the TPO: but see Lot 448. [The Third Watermark 2d & 3d were both issued in late-1915]

ASSOCIATED INTERSTATE MARKINGS: 'ENGLISH MAIL/7JY09/NSW' largely very fine b/s on registered cover to Sydney from Western Australia with 'YALGOO' cancels & 'REGISTERED PERTH' b/s, by coastal steamer to Adelaide where handed to the English Mail TPO, minor blemishes. Acquired at the Prestige auction of 22.2.2013 for $299.
All examples we have seen of the NSW markings are on inwards covers from Western Australia or overseas. The implication might be that at least some - and certainly not all - of the mail transferred from Wodonga to the Albury terminus was sorted on the train between Albury & Sydney. However, we expect these non-conforming usages were probably from Orient Line ships that terminated at Melbourne, from where they were carried as "loose letters" (ie unsorted mail) for on-forwarding from Wodonga to NSW destinations.
