1949 (13th Dec) Postmaster-General's Department form G.O.43 "Statement of incoming calls from other offices…" from Dardadine to Bunbury 1st to 28th November 1949. Applied to top left hand corner of form is "Postal Inspector Bunbury 19 Dec 1949". (ORS 1 - not recorded in PMI or PMC) Perhaps of even greater significance is the relief cancel No.22 (cds E31-b) dated 13 Dec 1949. PMI states "in 1950 the range of (relief) numbers was extended to 36" (from No.2). Further to this neither PMI or PMC records the use of this relief canceller before use to Narrogin in 1964. Good cond with some edge wear & aging. A piece of WA postal history.
