Exciting Moment!!

A New Postmark Identified!


I always get a little thrill when I start to collect a new country and I identify my first postmark within that country. My latest thrill came yesterday after I received a small lot of KGV Southern Rhodesia stamps. While sorting I put this stamp aside to see if I could find the origin of the postmark...

My investigation didn't take me as long as I'd first thought. The Post Office of origin for this stamp was Gwelo. Gwelo was changed to Gweru in 1982. Gweru is located right near the city centre of Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe is what Southern Rhodesia is now called).

One more Post Office identified!!

Happy Stamping!
