of this page is to list mainly thematic short-term postmarks which are
usually not relevant to new stamp issues. Longer term or permanent
postmarks, many of which show landmarks in towns and cities throughout
the United Kingdom can be found on this page.
For other postmarks, related to the new stamp issues, please see the
relevant stamp pages via the H_O_M_E page or
the links at the head of the table. Some postmarks will be listed both
here and on the stamp pages.
FOR BRITISH FORCES Philatelic Service: Return postage MUST be
included. For details of new arrangements for obtaining British Forces
Special Postmarks see
our updated blog entry.
Experience shows that the British Forces postmarks are not suitable for Maximum Cards due to the type of handstamp and type of ink used.
