re: New Issues from Australia Post

This is AP's latest release .Afraid I looked at it and though to myself (why bother) It's to mark the 100th Anniversary of compulsory voting .
I always thought in a democracy it was all about freedom of choice?????

re: New Issues from Australia Post

The enrol to vote is interesting and I find it amazing that some of the differences between Aus and USA voting system has not been mentioned.

In Australia if you do not vote you get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and a single bed to sleep in. Yes! You end up in jail if you do not pay a nasty fine, penalty for not voting. Makes for a totally different type of government running Australia than one that is in the USA.

Interesting. KG5

re: New Issues from Australia Post

An example of a leader lying to the people in Australia. Not even a week ago Queensland (State of Australia) had a State election for the political party to run Queensland for the next three years.

There are 89 seats or areas that are represented by all parties in an election by a person from each political party and voting is compulsory. Everybody over 18 years has to vote or else you are in big trouble.

The leader that was in power was a full on lier and the people hated it. They treated the people like they could do anything and they would still be voted in at the election. They were in power for 20 years.

That political party suffered the biggest defeat in Australia's history because they lied to the people. To govern you have to have 45 of the 89 seats to win. The opposition looks like they have won 80 seats. The ruling party lost over 50 seats to have only 5 and 4 seats to have gone to the minor political people.

Qeenslander's said no to lying. Queenslander's said no to spending more money than Queensland earns. They voted from the conscience. The lying political party that runs Australia is on notice. It is the next lying political party that is going to loose in such a way to make history as well. Do not upset Australian's or you will make history.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

This piece is from Wikipedia Re: Dr Victor Chang

On the 4th of July 1991, Chang was shot twice in the head in a failed extortion attempt. His body was found slumped in the gutter next to his car in Mosman. Two Malaysian men, Chew Seng (Ah Sung) Liew and Choon Tee (Phillip) Lim, ran their car into Chang's vehicle, forcing him to pull over. After Chang refused to give them money and got into an argument with them, Liew fired the fatal shots. He was sentenced to 26 years in prison with a non-parole period of 20 years. Lim received a minimum of 18 years and a maximum of 24 years. Liew pleaded guilty and Lim pleaded not guilty, claiming he did not know Liew had a gun. Another man, Stanley Ng, abandoned an extortion plan a day before the murder. He had unsuccessfully tried detaining Chang twice to force him to give A$3 million. Ng was granted immunity for his evidence. The prosecution alleged the plan had been to abduct Chang, tie him up with his family at his home in Clontarf, and threaten to hang them to coerce Chang into withdrawing money from the bank. In his ruling, Supreme Court Judge John Slattery stated, "It was an absurd, improbable plan, always doomed to failure".
On 26 October 2009, Lim was awarded parole. Following a public outcry and objection by the New South Wales Corrective Services Minister, John Robertson, his release was put on hold, pending another parole hearing. In the New South Wales Supreme Court, that decision was quashed due to the Parole Authority making a procedural error. Lim was freed from Parramatta Correctional Centre on 1 March 2010 into the custody of immigration officers. He was to be deported back to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 2 March, but the flight was cancelled for "technical reasons".] He was flown out of Australia on 3 March.

I was in Australia in January, while there I visited the Post Office and attempted to buy a paperback "History of the Australian Post". Imagine my chagrin and disappointment when the young lady clerk refused to sell the item to me. She said that the item had been withdrawn from sale because it was not in her computerized register.

Stamporama members from Australian and New Zealand:

My wife and I visited Gallipoli two years ago and our tour group included many
from Australia and New Zealand.

The weather was a perfect accompaniment to our spirits and sentiments: lashing rain
and screaming wind. It was difficult to view the terrain and battle sites and not cry one's heart out.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Les, interesting. I had never heard of that book.

Gallipoli should indeed have had an impact on Sir Winston's thinking in the second world war. As Lord of the Admiralty in the first war, Gallipoli was HIS idea, although he can't be blamed for its poor execution.

I don't recall Sir Winston ever mentioning Gallipoli as having had an influence on his strategy for the Second World War in his 6-volume memoirs of the war. It seems to me that the Italian campaign was not dissimilar in its strategic end-around, nor in its execution, nor even in its relative merits to the Allies. And, like Gallipoli, the Italian campaign was Sir Winston's determined idea (although its execution was mostly Mark Clark's).

Looks like Australian Post has met its goal: never forget.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Marshall (a Clausewitz disciple) wanted to go to the heart of Germany via France in 1942. Brooke was opposed to invading too soon because he rightly feared the Wehrmacht's fighting prowess. Churchill feared another disaster on the beaches. Roosevelt wanted US troops in action in 1942. The compromise was Torch, Husky, before Overlord, but it was not without a lot of distrust and angst.

It is a good read.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Les, i'll get the book. thanks for bringing it up.

Of course, Torch need not have turned into an invasion of Italy, but kept to either North Africa or that and the Mediterranean islands. The problem with Italy, like Gallipoli, was the terrain. Worse, once having captured Italy, the Allies really hadn't improved their strategic posture, other than having removed an ineffective enemy from the equation.

But, of course, I have the virtue of hindsight and no responsibility for the results of what I would propose.

Since then, she has extended her unbeated run to 21, and is preparing to fly to England to racr in late June. Perhaps AP will be able to trot out another sheet if she keeps her unbeated record.

" .... The compromise was Torch, Husky, before Overlord, ...." and Operation Dragoon right after Overlord. Two of my uncles took part, one in the army manning a 105mm howitzer and dragging it all the way to Paris. The other was an engineer on a large C-4 cargo ship that carried the tools of war.
Few people beyond WW II scholars realise that just as the Wermacht was getting organized in Normandy and Patton was "breaking out" the Dragoon operations opened up a front behind German lines.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

About mid August in 1944 the Seventh Army along with the Free French landed in southern France.
This was just as the Germans were pulling back from being trapped around Falaise by Patton's lightening right hook and meeting up with the Brits who had been stuck before Caen for some time. Suddenly they had to contend with the landing in their rear and a drive up the Rhone River Valley which became eventually a link up with the Normandy forces.
While some commentators refer to it as the Riveria landing as the initial paratroops and seabourne forces faced lighter resistance it was dead serious to the two thousand fatalities.
Normandy, the biggest amphibious landing in the European Theater gets a lot of publicity, but all in all the successful Liberation of France had several interlocking components.
The movie "To Hell and Back" starring CMH surviver Audie Murphey tells some of that story.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Just an observation, in Australia they associate Santa and Christmas with both summer and winter. In the US most of the country does not get snow or much snow in the winter yet we associate Santa almost exclusively with snow. When I was 6 or 7 I remember being in California at Christmas feeling very depressed because there wasn't any snow. My cousin felt sorry for me and took me to a neighborhood Christmas dispay where someone had painted their lawn white. It just wasn't the same.

Some US stamps of Santa and his reindeer at South Beach or enjoying the winter surf in southern California would be a change.

I have to assume Santa winters in Austrailia when he isn't working. He really needs to lose that red suit when he is on the beach though.

The Christmas Island sheet is cool. I subscribe to Linn's on-line stamp magazine which shows new issues for all the countries. How would I buy one? Would I need to contact each country's P.O., or is there a dealer who acts as a central clearing house?

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Hi Zipper
Usually there is a dealer who will handle new issues , probably advertises in Linn's,just a question of finding them.You could contact the head Post Office in the country who's stamps you want to see what they can offer.
I can, if anyone wishes obtain Australian new issues for face value plus postage, postage would have to be factored in depending on the size of the item and weight .Ordinary sets for which you could get several of in one envelope up to 50 grams costs $2.55 .But, looking at larger items which would require extra packing would be more costly .

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Hi
I just picked this bit of information up off of another board .Australia to increase international postage charges .

The $1.60 postcard rate will increase to $1.70.
The $1.65 Asia/Pacific (up to 50g) and Greetings card rate will increase to $1.75.
The $2.35 Rest of World (up to 50g) rate will increase to $2.60.
The $4.50 Asia/Pacific (50g-250g) rate will increase to $4.65.
The $6.20 Rest of World (50g-250g) rate will increase to $6.45.
They can't be making enough money out of stamp collectors this is to take place in April maybe the 1st
A set of five gummed stamps (one for each of the above rates) will be issued on 2 April 2013. Self-adhesive versions of the $1.70, $1.75 and $2.60 stamps will be available, and no doubt personalised versions of these three will be available too.

re: New Issues from Australia Post

Now this is one beautiful stamp.

I remember being about thirteen years old and living in a Levitt house with my parents.
TV was in its infancy and only a few homes had sets, and those that did had these gigantic Dumont or Motorola models built into a substantial cabinet. But the tube, at least the one we had was about 7" on a side. They were black and white of course and signals were received via a large antenna that had to be mounted atop ones roof as high as possible. Those antennae became so common that photos of the day usually refer to them as a "rooftop forest." On the best of days the signals we received from New York City were somewhat snowy and at times completely incomprehensible.
The Coronation was a big event and of course filmed in London for distribution to all the colonies and former colonies around the world. So I recall listening to the static filled radio re-broadcast, more or less in real time on my five tube superhetrodyne receiver and as best I remember everyone awaited the arrival of the raw footage so we could see it in our living rooms.
A few miles East of Levittown and our house lay Mitchel Field, a large sprawling Air Force base that often was the home of the nations biggest bombers.
The film of the Coronation was carried from England in a BOAC DeHaviland Comet, the first one I had seen and possibly the first to land in the US. Because of its size it needed a long runway to accommodate it and the commercial airports were not yet able to handle transoceanic jets.
So the Comet passed almost directly over my head and the film canisters were driven to the TV studios in New York City where it was prepared to be broadcast on US TV channels.
There was a delay caused by some difference in the way TV films were produced in England and the USA so it took hours for the raw footage to be converted, but finally the Coronation was shown and I remember watching it totally transfixed by the extravaganza. In particular there was this stately coach drawn by eight white horses that we now see in living color on this stamp.

PS: Minor Trivia, Mitchel Field was named after a local politician, not General Billy Mitchel who certainly deserved such an honor and is the only person that a US Military aircraft has been named after. That is the famous B-25 of the Doolittle raid fame.
