Hallo (first post!)....I'm trying to access the above self published title, is it available anywhere? My interests are on the aero side of aerophilately and in the 1930s/WWII/1940s/1950s period....Mick (M D West,in the UK)



Re: The Foynes and Botwood Logs by Peter Berry

Your attachment of the Foynes and Botwood Log by Peter Berry did not come through for some reason. I first found that book at the Foynes Flying Boat Museum in Foynes Ireland and it was only a xerox copy. I think that is the way it was originally distributed and that is the only copy that I ever found in the wild. Peter Berry gave me permission by email to give a copy to the American Philatelic Research Library and they have that copy.
I took that data as well as the PAA Trip Summaries that I found at U.Miami and put them into a book.This included virtually all the PAA commercial flying boat trips around the Atlantic from 1939 to 1945 You will find that book as
by David Crotty at Amazon.com. Also, now that you are a member of the Aerophilatelic group you can go to the Files of this location and find the "trip summaries" and a number of other documents related to the era. Let me know if that works for you. If you happen to have more documents that would add to our collection feel free to add to it.

Yes that makes sense thank you.  I know you were at the World Stamp Show.  I found a CAM 6 1926 Michigan First Flight that I added to my collection.  What did you glean  from the WSS 2016?  I learned so much and networked.  Sorry I missed your presentation as I was volunteering at the AMS Booth for Ken Sanford.  How did your talk go?

Re: New Chinese Amphibian aircraft

GreyOldDave
 

During large forest fires you may notice in the news they sometimes show the firefighters using a wide range of aircraft to drop water mixed with some other materials to kill the fire. They use a wide range of helicopters and land planes, There are two very old Martin flying boats based in Canada that get used once in awhile too. 
The flying boats, like this new aircraft, can land in a lake, full the internal tanks with water and be in the air in a few minutes
Hope that helps.

DAVE:  Chinese amphibious aircraft very interesting.  Did you find the cost of it?  I like how they compare it to what Howard Hughes had built.  So his dream has come true in this.  I do not understand the usage though - could you explain: AVIC states that the aircraft will be suitable for aerial firefighting dropping 12 tonnes of water.?

Folks
We discussed early reports about this Chinese item. Here is a new report of this new aircraft just off the assembly line. Not a lot of info seems to be available about it other than "almost as big as a 737.

Re: Airmail Rates to Russia in 1941

Bob Watson
 

Hi Tom

Confession time: I got it wrong. From July 1, 1939 to June 24, 1941 the rate via Atlantic FAM route, and from Europe (whatever route) was 45¢ per ½ ounce, so this was merely a ½-1 ounce letter. It pays to look carefully at the tables!

Regards,

Bob Watson

All;

 

Thanks for all the input. So it looks like is 90¢ for triple rate plus 15¢ for registered and 5¢ for Return Receipt. This was mailed 1/30/40. So this was before the rate increase to 70¢ on 6/25/41. There is no tear tab on the back for a return receipt card. I’ve included a scan of the back in case anyone is interested. Thank you for the various book referrals. It appears I have a few more to pick-up. Thank all of you again.

Hi Tom

I’ve looked this up in Tony Wawrukiewicz’s book on US International Postal Rates. Registration fee at the time was 15¢ and return receipt was 5¢, leaving 90¢ for airmail. Airmail rates to the USSR at the time are found in the “Europe” table on p 137 which were 30¢ per ½ ounce, so this appears to have weighed 1-1½ ounces. Is there any evidence on the back of a return receipt card having been attached?

Polonius Polish Stamp Society Editor Needed

GreyOldDave
 

Folks,
I received this request from Ed Andrews about the Polish Stamp Society needs a new editor for its journal. If any of you are interested please contact Ed at the addresses below.

POLONUS the Polish Stamp Society here in the US, and, soon to be their President. We like many small societies (~250+ members) are struggling with finances and resources. One big area of concern is our journal (bulletin) which is published 4x a year in full color. It is a classy publication and won a gold medal at CHICAGOPEX a few years ago. We are looking for a new editor and don’t have the deep pockets to hire someone well known in the industry. I am writing you in the hopes you may know of someone that might be available to take on editing this publication. Any and all suggestions are welcomed.
 
Best regards,
 
ED

Folks the Royal Philatelic Soc of London has announced it is digitizing a large literature collection. This material dates back to 1913 so will not have much about airmail or postage meters but it might fit in with some of your other interests. There will be a discussion about this at NY2016 on Monday May 30.

Note also that the RPSL maintains a literature index on its website that the MSS has been contributing to for about 10 years. A literature search from their website will yield numerous citations, including those from the MSS.

PRESS RELEASE

 

Major Philatelic Library to be Available Online

 

The major philatelic library built up by the 26th Earl of Crawford is to be made available online at www.globalphilateliclibrary.org from 30 May (subject to some copyright constraints).

 

The Crawford Philatelic Library comprises over 1.3 million pages and represents around 95% of the world’s published philatelic knowledge at the time it was created.

 

This major digitisation programme will be launched on Monday, 30 May 2016 during the World Stamp Show in New York. A presentation will be given in Room 1E07 of the Javits Centre at 2pm by Frank Walton RDP FRPSL, President of The Royal Philatelic Society London. All are welcome.

 

When the 26th Earl of Crawford died in 1913 he left his magnificent philatelic library to the British nation. It has been carefully kept and conserved ever since by the British Library in London, where it is available for researchers in the Reading Room.

 

Thanks to creative thinking and IT development by staff at the British Library and volunteers from The Royal Philatelic Society London, a project to digitise every page of every volume is now well advanced. The work has been aided by funding from the British Library, the former British Philatelic Trust, the Philatelic Fund and The Royal Philatelic Society London.

 

More details of this project were given by David Beech MBE FRPSL, in a supplement published with the March edition of The London Philatelist, journal of The Royal Philatelic Society London. The text can be downloaded from the Global Philatelic Library website.
