Colonial Heritage

Inside #????: Australia #59O

In 2013 we mark the centenary of the first Australian Commonwealth postage stamp issue. For some 60 years prior to its release the colonies had produced their own postage stamps. This issue is the last in the Colonial Heritage stamp series (2010-13), a celebration of Australia's rich philatelic heritage.

The World Stamp Expo gives us the opportunity to celebrate the centenary of the Kangaroo and Map with the rest of the philatelic world. While technically the Kangaroo and Map was not, of course, a colonial stamp, in this commemorative context it forms a bookend to the colonial period of stamp design and production.

Released 12 years after Federation, our first national stamp had a troubled beginning. This was partly due to the complexity of a changing postal administration, but it was also political in nature; the revolving off ice-holder of postmastergeneral (11 occupants of the ministry between 1901 and 1912) and the incumbents' ideas around appropriate content pointed to competing narratives of nationhood.

Despite convening a specialist stamp board and holding an international competition to obtain an outstanding design, Australia's fi rst national stamp issue - the Kangaroo and Map - proved a contentious result.

The design of no single artist, it engendered widespread anger that the King's head was absent, mockery that a kangaroo should be adopted as a national symbol and dislike for a design that was considered rudimentary compared with the ornate designs of the time. Since its turbulent release, however, the Kangaroo and Map design has gained much respectability.

Cocos (Keeling) Islands 50th Anniversary of stamps

Inside #371a: Cocos Islands #1O,#2O,#3O,#4O,#5O,#6O

The first issue was a pictorial defi nitive series depicting the copra industry (3d); a constellation aircraft (5d); a map of the islands (8d); palms (1/-); a Jukong (2/-); and a white tern (2/3). The 1963 stamp designs are presented as imperforate in the sheetlet for this stamp issue and microdated.

During WWII and up to 1954 an RAAF Post Off ice operated on Cocos (Keeling) Islands (CKI), run by RAAF personnel and using Australian stamps. In 1952 the Malaysian postal administration set up a post off ice using Singapore stamps until Australia assumed administration of CKI in 1955. Australian stamps were used until 1963 when the first CKI stamps were issued on 11 June.

From around 1909 mail and other essential items were delivered to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands within barrels lowered or dropped from passing P&O and Orient Line ships. The approaching liner would notify the cable station on Direction Island and staff members would collect the barrel from their jukongs. At the same time, outgoing mail was sealed in a tin can and attached to a line trailing from the ship making the drop. Some mail dispatched to and from the islands in this way carried a range of postal markings and cachets such as "Tin Can Mail" or "Orion Barrel"; (in reference to the RMS Orion).

Traditions of Czech Stamp Production

Inside #????: 1975 postal stationery (50th anniversary of the launch of automated telephone operation in Czechoslovakia)

Inside #????: Czechoslovakia #1936

The newly outlined Tradition of Czech Stamp Design issue commemorates another significant stamp designer, Ivan Strnad. The stamp shows a portrait of Ivan Strnad; a part of the mirrored motif which first appeared on a 1975 postal stationery item commemorating the 50th anniversary of the launch of automated telephone operation in Czechoslovakia, placed in the left-hand side; and a female nude from the 30h stamp Intersputnik issued in 1974, placed in the right-hand side.

Czech graphic artist and teacher Ivan Strnad was born on 3 April 1926 in Prague and died in January 2005. He created many Czechoslovak and Czech stamps and commemorative coins. He was a member of the associations of Czech graphic artists Hollar and Grafis.

Ivan Strnad taught students in a special applied graphic arts studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague where he later became an associate professor. He was the author of stamp designs, illustrations, applied graphics and graphic designs, architectural works, textile works and medals. His work includes over 100 Czechoslovak stamps, banknotes, a number of company logos and more than 20 share warrants. He excelled in free graphic art, dry needle and engraving; figure compositions were also among his favourite disciplines.

During his lifetime he won many awards for his works of art. Most of them came for his stamp designs (1964: 2nd prize for the stamps 20 Years of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic; 1966: 1st prize for the stamp series Vanguard 65; 1967, 1970-1972, 1974, 1975: various Best Stamp of the Year awards) and the most beautiful banknotes (1980: the 500 Kčs banknote).

The coupon features a head drawing fron the background of the 1 Kčs stamp which appeared in the 1977 Space Exploration series.

"I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong

The first definitive stamps of Queen Elizabeth II were placed on sale on 19th October 1953. The colonys first ever philatelic exhibition was held to coincide with the first day of issue. A special postmark was used at the exhibition held at the Calpe Institute which was run by the British Council.

The 1953 series was prepared using King George VI head depicting the St. Edwards Crown over the portraits oval and was meant to replace the old definitive set of King George VI. On account of King Georges VI death on the 6th February 1952, the same designs were used with the Queen Elizabeth II head as a substitution. The pictorial set of fourteen values was designed by Mr Norman Cumming, a Government draughtsman.

The Queens Accession: King George VI died in his sleep at Sandringham House on the night of 6 February 1952. He was aged just 56. Long illness and the strain of leadership during the dark days of World War II had taken their toll on the much-loved monarch. Princess Elizabeth, the elder of the kings two daughters, was away in Kenya at the beginning of a royal tour of Commonwealth states, standing in for her father because of his ill health. The news of his death was broken to her by her husband Prince Philip. Elizabeth, aged just 25, faced not only the grief of losing her father, but the daunting prospect that she was now Queen of the United Kingdom and Head of the Commonwealth. Although Elizabeth had acceded to the throne, it would be another 16 months until her coronation.

The Coronation: Queen Elizabeths arrival at Westminster Abbey, where 8,000 guests awaited, marked the beginning of the religious ceremony that would conclude with her coronation. She was dressed in white silk embroidered with the emblems of the Commonwealth nations and on top of it, the velvet Robe of State, more than 5 metres long, its train supported by seven maids of honour. At the altar, the Queen took the Coronation Oath, swearing to uphold justice and the laws of her realms and to defend the Anglican faith. Then, in the most ancient and sacred moment of the ceremony, the Queen was anointed with holy oil by the Archbishop of Canterbury whilst seated in the Coronation Chair. As she received royal sceptres, orb and robe, and finally the crown itself, the congregation responded with a shout of God save the Queen!
