Pictures of 1914 cards.


This is the card being used as the model for the 2014 card, which will look much the same, with Re-enactment replacing Inauguration and appropriate changes to the small print..

Many sources agree that only 1795 postcards were carried, but certainly more were produced. It is believed that 2500 were printed, numbered accordingly. We have found two examples in private hands that have numbers greater than 2000.

Alfred Grech has card no 2006. We have organised to print card no 2006 for the centenary mail run, but will still only carry 1785 cards!
