Issue Name: Post & Go - Royal Mail Heritage - Mail By Air
Producer: Buckingham Covers
Continuing the 'Royal Mail Heritage' series, this Post & Go focuses on mail by air. The stamps mark key events in the development of airmail from the first British scheduled service between Hendon and Windsor in 1911 through to 1980s datapost. Our lovely cover is in the style of an air mail letter and features three printed BEA stamps along with a specal cachet and has all six new Post & Go Mail By Air stamps along with a Croydon postmark (this is where the land operations of Imperial Airways were based).
Post & Go - Mail by Air
Mail transportation by aeroplane was inaugurated in February 1911, when the world’s first airmail was carried at an exhibition in Allahabad, India. Seven months later, the UK’s first aerial post was flown from Hendon to Windsor in honour of King George V’s coronation between 9th and 26th September, 20 flights were made between the two locations, which constituted the world’s first regular airmail service.
