T.P.O. E: Very fine cancel of 16MY09 - ERD - on 1d pink pair & superb almost complete cancel of 5MR13 on 1d Roo. Nothing is known about the circumstances of this datestamp. Watson Webster & Wood believed it was associated with the English Mail TPO, a proposition accepted by Molnar & Waugh. However, no covers are recorded so this is only a "best guess". The second item is illustrated at page 97.

DOWN EXPRESS: 'POSTED MELBOURNE/13AP08/DOWN EXPRESS' - the ERD - ten (!) largely fine strikes tying "Bantam d & 1d pink x8 to American firm's mail order envelope-front, to Chicago, minor defects. Rated RRR but this is the only recorded usage on cover. An extraordinary & enigmatic item. Ex Hugh Wynn, Gary Watson and George Bowman: illustrated at page 97, and by Watson Webster & Wood at page E-31. [WWW believed this was used aboard the English Mail TPO. However, Molnar & Waugh may be correct that it was a supplementary service to Wodonga to catch the Sydney mails sent on an earlier train]
