re: AEROGRAMMES

That’s a good question - do any of our members collect ANY postal stationery? Although, we sometimes see posts here that ask for an item to be identified that turns out to be cut from stationery, I don’t recall many entires.

re: AEROGRAMMES

I have several dozen (or more) Aerogrammes and assorted postal stationary. When things slow down a little I need to do some serious housecleaning (shifting priorities away from stamps) and will list a few lots under the "Stamps for Sale" section to avoid breaking any rules (very few pieces of old postal stationary are fault free - most serious postal history collectors accept faults).

re: AEROGRAMMES

I have tucked away postal stationary from all the big cover lots I've been buying the last few years.
I especially like postal cards, but have saved postal stationary and aerogrammes, all US. Eventually I need to sort it all, put together a collection, and sell off the rest!

If anyone is looking for the later ones, mint unused, I have a bunch to spare!

re: AEROGRAMMES

I collect used aerograms, as long as they fit into my aerophilately or WWII/Vietnam War/Algerian War collections, but the imprinted stamps must feature an aviation or flight theme — aircraft, parts of aircraft, birds, etc. And I have to like them, or at least appreciate their historical significance.

I have perhaps 20 aerograms in my collection:

Two Canadian aerograms, featuring two versions of an imprinted stamp picturing the Canadair DC-4M Northstar airliner:


Image Not Found

One aerogram each from Pakistan, South Africa, and wartime Great Britain. The British aerogram could anchor any exhibit of POW mail:

Image Not Found

It was written in 1944 by Frances Jupp, who had been interned, along with her entire family, after the German occupation of the Channel Islands in 1940. I’ve not yet learned whether they were residents of Guernsey or Jersey, and It is not known when their internment began, but in October, 1942 they apparently arrived among a group of 618 internees at Ilag Wurzach, in the town of Wurzach (now Bad Wurzach) in southeastern Baden-Württemberg. Several more details of their internment are available on my web page, The Channel Islands at war — Deportation & imprisonment.

I also have several Indian aerograms, each with an imprinted stamps in different values featuring my favourite airliner, a Lockheed Constellation, but I've never scanned any of them. Here's a typical example which I grabbed from an eBay listing:

Image Not Found

In the 1950s and early 1960s, MATS, the Military Air Transport Command, flew "Connies." it was a MATS Connie that flew me from Travis Air Force Base in California to Tachikawa Air Force Base in Japan, with stops for fuel and meals at Hickham Field in Hawaii and Wake Island. Twenty-six hours in the air!
