Category: COCOS ISLANDS POSTAL HISTORY - RAAF Post Office 1951 to 1954
1953 PMG's Department stampless envelope with fine strike of the rare 'RAAF PO/COCOS ISLAND' cachet in violet & cds of 24AP53, to Rex Allison in Melbourne, flap removed & minor spotting. With the testy letter from Sgt K Warburton, the RAAF PO postmaster: "...this Post Office is not run for Philatelists...Cable and Wireless have informed me they have been plagued with letters from you...I have not the time to waste on your personal requests..." Marvellous!
