Local Posts

'Local Posts' usually issue 'Carriage Stamps' or Freight Labels indicating prepayment of service for forwarding mail or goods to regular Postal Authorities or via private transportation.

Included here are territories, classes or entities not listed by the Universal Postal Union (UPU) whose stamps are intended to move mail via national postal authorities.

Further included is any political entity (EnenKio Atoll, Greenpeace, Okusi-Ambeno ...) that issues stamps - even for just economic reasons. - This intrudes into the region of 'Cinderella' stamps.

The Cinderella Philatelist - April 2002)

"Christmas posts have been operated by scout and other groups since legislative sanction was passed in 1981 (in the UK). Most groups (I noticed about 535 entities c.2014 - aj.) have issued stamps of some kind, often self-adhesive, others have simply applied a handstamp (cachet). Readers interested in these issues are reminded that a new issue service for the stamps issued in 2001 and future years is run by John Crabbe" (see left)

Brecqhou, a small island near Sark, in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, had one issue in 1969 then regular issues starting in December 1999. "In that month, Sir David and Sir Frederick Barclay, owners of the island, commissioned a Christmas label to be used on mail going by boat via St. Peter Port, Guernsey and on mail sent by helicopter to Exeter or London."

    "The Free Vinland Republic, located on the island of New Vinland in the northern Atlantic, was originally settled by European and Occussian farmers, and became a colony of Occussi-Ambeno. It won independence in 1993. Today, it is a largely self-sufficient country, and pursues a policy of supporting human and animal rights worldaround, and not being over prolific in stamp issuing, unlike many other wallpaper publishers."

    They declared independence " response to a dispute with the government of Western Australia over what the Casley family considered draconian. . . the five families who owned farms at Hutt River banded together to fight (a) quota (on their harvests) . . . After approaches to the government to reconsider the acquisition bill failed, Casley and his associates resorted to International Law, which they felt allowed them to secede . . . The Governor-General of Australia, Sir Paul Hasluck, later stated that it was unconstitutional for the Commonwealth to intervene in the secession. . ." (Wikipedia)

    "The Royal Hutt River Postal Service was established to provide the necessary service of mail delivery and dispatch within the Principality and was one of the earliest government services established following secession. . ."

    HRH Prince Ian
    Minister for Postal Services.

    "While the local resident population is small, a large number of Overseas Citizenships have been issued to people around the globe. The Principality also enjoys a good, active and widespread diplomatic representation throughout most of the developed world." (Homepage)

    "The Principality of Hutt River, previously known as the Hutt River Province, is the oldest micronation in Australia. The principality claims to be an independent sovereign state and to have achieved legal status on 21 April 1970, although it remains unrecognised by Australia or other nations. . ." (Wikipedia)
