New Stamps for 2017!

It's been a while since posting on the forum but we are back!

Local Post stamp collectors will be pleased to hear of the imminent release of several new single and multiple stamp sets for the second half of 2017, from the Canvey Island LP. Stamp images will be posted after each release date.
 
21st August: The first stamp set of 2017 is part of a four set series covering "Endangered Fauna and Flora of Canvey Island", starting with a four stamp set featuring Insects. 

4th September: Due to increasing interest in CILP stamps from overseas, a vintage postcard scene featuring seaplanes will be released as our first Air Mail 'Priority' stamp. 

14th October: A four stamp set featuring Famous Public Houses of Canvey Island, which have been central to island community life.

27th November: To round off the postal year, we have secured an original Christmas drawing from cartoonist Paul Munro to adorn an Xmas 2017 reduced rate seasonal stamp.

Collectors are advised to obtain their copies from our agent, Alpha Thematics, as soon as possible after release. The Public Houses and Xmas 2017 issues are very short print runs.

Empire Flying-Boat Airmail Stamp
4th September 2017

New stamp issued today. The design features an Imperial Airways Empire Flying-Boat with piggy-back S-20 mail carrier.



This image appeared as a generic front-end of a multiview postcard c.1938. Seaside towns would order fold-out views of their area to be attached and a overprinted title on the front image. In this case the original card was overprinted with "Flying high with views over Canvey Island".


Stamp and limited edition FDC available from Alpha Thematics

Famous Public Houses Stamp Set

Canvey Island Local Post (CILP) released it's Famous Public Houses stamp issue on the 23rd October, 2017. It is a four horizontal stamp set featuring Canvey Island 'pubs' that have played a defining role in community life for many decades and in one case, centuries.

The 'pubs' featured in a stylised pencil sketch style are; the Haystack, the Admiral Jellicoe, the King Canute (prior to the 1953 flood known as the Red Cow), and the Lobster Smack. The latter was used by Charles Dickens as the Ship Inn in his 1861 novel Great Expectations. All the other pubs have their own stories and history, both good and bad.

With the imminent demolition and re-development of the Admiral Jellicoe and the closure of the King Canute (formerly Red Cow), it is poignant and timely that the CILP should release this long planned stamp set now.

Unfortunately, it was necessary to omit equally famous or well known pubs and drinking clubs from this issue, such as the old Oysterfleet, the Canvey Club (featured on a vinyl LP cover by R&B band Dr Feelgood), and younger establishments such as the Windjammer of the 1980s, and the Silver Jubilee from 1977. We hope to include these in a future stamp issue.

A total of 45 sets and six First Day Covers have been produced. Stamps and covers (subject to availability) available from Alpha Thematics on eBid UK

First Issue of 2018:
Queen Elizabeth II - Life & Service


To commemorate HM Queen Elizabeth II accession to the throne on 6 February 1952, and to recognise The Queen's dedication to the service of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, the CILP has issued a set of five se-tenant stamps on 6 February 2018.

Entitled, "Queen Elizabeth II - Life & Service", the stamps show four portraits from HM The Queen's life from 1928 to 2013. A fifth stamp bears her Armorial Banner, often referred to as the Royal Standard. Across the base of the stamps is a quote from HM The Queen's accession oath; "The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep."

Only 84 sets have been produced as a se-tenant strip with full perforations and gum. Each stamp measures approximately 31x31mm. A very limited edition of First Day Covers and FDI postcards have been produced (due to technical and aesthetic reasons the se-tenant strip has been broken to accommodate hand applied FDI cancellations). 

This issue (subject to availability) can be obtained from Alpha Thematics on eBid UK

Royal Air Force Centenary

To commemorate the centenary of the formation of the Royal Air Force on 1st April, 1918, the CILP has issued a single stamp on 1st April, 2018.

The stamp showing a WWII veteran Hurricane was originally issued in 2010 to commemorate the Battle of Britain. It is being re-issued bearing a handstamped red overprint legend “R.A.F 1918-2018”. Only 22 overprinted stamps have been issued, each stamp is approximately 30x40mm. A limited edition of 5 Commemorative Covers has also been produced.

Originally a new stamp design was planned for this commemoration but due to emergency eye surgery, the project was cancelled. However, the event could not go unmarked by the CILP and the use of the Hurricane stamp seemed appropriate.

Emergency.
Eye.
Surgery.

Shocked

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
