|1933 Falkland Islands|
1933 registered envelope to Yeovil, England, bearing a Centenary 6d cancelled SOUTH GEORGIA 24 NO 33 with another datestamp alongside. A South Georgia registration label is on the front of the cover.
|1933 Falkland Islands|
1933 whalers mourning envelope (black outlines on the back only) to Norway franked with a Centenary 1d and 1½d, paying the 2½d rate to a non Commonwealth country, cancelled by an indifferent SOUTH GEORGIA 4 NO 33 datestamp. A little roughly opened at the right but a scarce commercial whalers mourning envelope.
|1844 Great Britain / Falkland Islands|
1844 'Free frank' unstamped envelope used internally within London with NO 7 and NO 8 1844 datestamps. In the lower left corner is a 'Stanley' signature. At this time Lord Stanley, the 14th Earl of Derby, was the Colonial Secretary. It was after him that Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands was named. An interesting piece of ephemera for a Falkland Island collector. Stanley mail is not common!
|1915c Falkland Islands|
1915c envelope to Emsworth, Hants, with a loose type two line 'RECEIVED FROM H.M.S. SHIPS / NO CHARGE TO BE RAISED' cachet, that has a number of missing letters and errors of spelling, but alongside is a very fine strike of the 'PASSED CENSOR / H.M.S. KENT' circular cachet. Accompanying the envelope is a picture post card of damage made by a shell fired from the 'Nurnburg' on Dec 8 1914 to the Kent.
|1925 Falkland Islands|
1925 envelope to Bristol, England, bearing a pair of ½d's cancelled by the oval H. M. S. “AFTERGLOW” POSTED ON BOARD 24 AUG 1925 canceller. On the back is a Port Stanley SP 1 25 transit datestamp. The cover has a light vertical crease well clear of the stamps, that does not detract.
|1929 Falkland Islands|
1929 1d postal stationery envelope (Type II) registered to London with three 1d's added to pay the 4d registered rate, cancelled PORT STANLEY 3 MY 29. A London 5 JU 29 arrival c.d.s. is on the back.

|1920's Falkland Islands|
Late 1920's envelope to Roy Cove franked with a 1d cancelled by the double oval 'POSTED ON BOARD' canceller, without date, that has had the 'R.M.S. COLUMBUS' removed. These were only known used to Roy Cove between 1926 and 1931. After the withdrawal of the H.M.C.S. 'Afterglow' in 1926, the RMS Falkland was bought back into service to serve the out-laying districts in the Falklands. Between 1914 and 1918, the old canceller, which was originally that of the R.M.S. Columbus, had been used on the R.M.S. Falkland with a straight line R.M.S. FALKLAND handstamp. In the late 1920's only the oval 'POSTED ON BOARD' was used. A very scarce cover with this marking.
|1914 Falkland Islands|
1914 envelope (flap missing) to Port Stanley franked with a 1d and ½d tied by a DECEPTION ISLAND, SOUTH SHETLANDS 3 FEB 1914 datestamp. This is, according to Heijtz, (page 146) the earliest recorded usage of this canceller from Deception Island.
|1913 Falkland Islands|
A 1913 picture post card of a Gentoo Penguin Rookery, believed to be the rookery to the east of the old Salvesen Whaling Station on New Island. On the back is 'Printed in Saxony'. Fine.
|1916 Falkland Islands|
A 1916 picture post card of Port Stanley, printed and published by Ray V Hardy in Port Stanley in 1916. Fine.
|1916 Falkland Islands|
A 1916 picture post card of Port Stanley with the church in the foreground, printed and published by Ray V Hardy in Port Stanley in 1916. Fine.
|1927 Falkland Islands|
1927 envelope to Buenos Aires, Argentina, franked with a 6d cancelled FALKLAND ISLANDS 2 FE 27. On the back are Buenos Aires 13 & 16 FEB 27 arrival cancels.
|1896 Falkland Islands|
1896 envelope to London franked with a ½d and 2d cancelled FALKLAND ISLANDS DE 11 1896. (Andrews type 6) On the back is a London JA 10 97 arrival c.d.s. This letter would have sailed on the 'Osiris' which left Stanley on December 17 1896. A little roughly opened at the top.
|1954 Falkland Islands|
1954 air letter to London, written from Admiralty Bay, South Shetlands, with the senders details – B. Goldborne, Base G, Admiralty Bay, F.I.D.S. - typed on the back. The letter went to Port Stanley where it was cancelled. Interesting contents regarding “making recordings for the B.B.C. and will be on a programme called South”.
|1953 Falkland Islands|
1953 size 'H' 4d registered envelope to England, additionally franked with a 'Victory' 3d, tied by Port Stanley datestamps. A London Customs handstamp is on the front of the cover, otherwise there are no other markings.
|1886 Falkland Islands|
1886 envelope to Syracuse, U.S.A. franked with a 4d tied by a cork obliterator (Heijtz cork 6x4, used between October 2 and December 17 1886) with a FALKLAND ISLANDS DE 16 1886 datestamp alongside. A Syracuse MR 12 1887 arrival c.d.s. is on the back. This cover was on the Kosmos steamer “Theben” which left Port Stanley on 17 December, but the mails were delayed in Punta Arenas before eventually being transferred to the “Uarda” for the homeward journey. This explains the late arrival in Syracuse after an 85 day journey. The envelope has the embossed government seal on the back and interestingly the “On Her Majesty's Service” has been obliterated as it was a private letter – not an official one. A fine and rare early cover from the Falkland Islands.

1938 envelope to England franked with a 5/- blue and chestnut cancelled by a fine strike of the FOX BAY JA 15 38 datestamp.
