New Guinea: Australian Occupation: 1916 ''N.W./PACIFIC/ISLANDS.'' on Australia 21/2d. indigo, Die II, Second Watermark, fine used example with Rabaul 1918 Nov. c.d.s. B.P.A. certificate (2017). S.G. 87, cat. £28,000. Photo. One of the great rarities of New Guinea, absent from almost all of the important British Commonwealth collections offered at auction in the last 50 years. Only 40 panes (1,200 stamps) of the 21/2d. were overprinted with the 'first state' forme of the fourth overprint setting, despatched to Rabaul in July 1917, this being a small order as existing stocks were considered reasonably adequate. The new consignment had remained untouched when, in late spring 1918 the key to the safe at the Rabaul Treasury went missing. A forced entry employing a blowtorch was ill considered, the damage exacerbated by the use of water to extinguish the resulting fire. It has been reported (''The Story of a Rarity: N.W.P.I. No. 14'', article by Thomas L. Belknap, journal of American Society of Australian Philatelists, Oct. 1971) that a single pane of thirty of the 21/2d. consignment is understood to have survived, the lower row of this displaying some moisture induced staining caused by the interleaving. The centring of this example may suggest that at least part of a second pane may also have survived. Nevertheless, this is believed to be the only surviving genuine postally used copy, all other recorded 'used' examples having been cancelled to order.

Jackson writes, ""I have asked Mr. Harmsworth to send you an abstract of my letter to him . . . we are meeting with many unexpected difficulties and disappointments here but shall, I trust, lick them all in the end of the thing. You may be sure we shall do our best to uphold the honour of old England in the far north."" Jackson later publically expressed his gratitude to Cooke for his assistance in the purchase of furs and a pre-tested log-hut for the expedition. On 17 June there had occurred the surprise arrival of Fridtjoft Nansen and a sole companion from the ""Fram"", Hjalmar Johansen, who had attempted a failed dash to the Pole and only by good fortune stumbled upon Jacksons' field headquarters, ""Elmwood"" on Northbrook Island.

Falkland Islands: 1936, George Roberts unadopted essay of S.S. Great Britain to commemorate the 50th year of her arrival in the Islands, the design employing the image of a vessel off Lundy island, with inscription recording Bristol 1843, Stanley 1936, Guppy (the builder) and Brunel (the engineer), handcoloured on thin card (46 x 28mm.) affixed to thick paper. Ex Henniker-Heaton private collection. A unique item and most attractive. A fund raising venture was undertaken in 1936 to restore the ship for use as the local Sea Rover troop headquarters. Letters were written by the then Governor of the Islands, Henniker-Heaton, to the Lord Mayor of Bristol and the Manager of the Bank of New South Wales appealing for financial support and a Public Works Manager was asked to prepare a detailed estimate of costs. The manager was Roberts himself, and the essay would have been produced at this time in support of the project. Unfortunately the estimate of £10,021.16s.6d. was judged too great at a Council meeting held in April 1936 and plans for restoration were shelved. Although sinking the vessel was considered the next option, she was later towed out and beached at Sparrow Cove until her rescue and return to Bristol in 1970. Photo.
