This section of the website is under construction. Regular additions and updates will take place over the next few years. There is, however, a wealth of resources that are already available:
A. If you use the SEARCH OUR WEBSITE section on each page of the website there are around sixteen pages on various postmarks. It is, however, difficult to navigate, hence this task of renovation.
B. There is a significant body of information on postmarks to be found in our Journals stretching back nearly 75 years. You can source this information via the updated Journal Index by Topic which can be found on the website.
C. There are a few particular publications that are available for members to purchase: These two Memoirs can be ordered via the website:
- Postmarks on the Rhodesia 1913-1925 ‘Admiral’ Issue.
- Postmarks on the 1910-1913 Double Head Issue – Paradise Revisited
- In addition, the RSC Publications Officer has a few copies of this important book available for sale, Hoyte and Lashbrook’s – South of the Zambesi
D. There are several publications/articles which can be downloaded free:
- Mike Hughes has generously provided his The Machine Cancellations of Rhodesia 1911-1980 as a PDF which can be downloaded off this website.
- In addition, again through the kind offices of Mike Hughes, we have a free download for The Mutilated Hand Stamps of Rhodesia January – June, 1979 by Mitchell and Russell which was gifted to him by the late Cecil Russell.
- We have also been sent a copy (not a great copy, but useful nonetheless) of the late Don Mitchell’s Skeleton Relief Cancellers of S. Rhodesia 1902-1968 It is a PDF which can be downloaded off this website.Without wishing to engage in a debate on ‘status’ of these cancels (they are certainly collected and studied), an update on the 1924 Double Head ‘Remainders’ (CTO’s) can be downloaded from the website.
E. There are a few other very useful publications on this topic:
- Knight & Mitchell – Post Marks, Postal Routes and Principal Postage Rates of Southern Rhodesia to 1924
- Hoyte – North of the Zambesi
