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.

 

Bureau of Machine stamps? What's the difference?

The Bureau released stamps have the serial number ending with the Post & Go number for the series issue. Covers also include the carrier information card for the stamp set.

Machine stamps do not have the same serial number as the bureau stamps, in fact, the serial numbers are continually changing as they are printed.
