    Notes 
    • Post-Marks. Owing to the general efficiency of our Post Office in England, I think that few people realize the great annoyance and inconvenience caused to us who are living abroad by the very bad postmarking of letters. I enclose you an envelope to the point, and the Postmaster-General's reply. I had explained to him that without a microscope or magnifying glass the post mark (which the PMG by delightful irony calls the "date stamp") was totally illegible. Unfortunately I gave the PMG a clue which must have been overheard by the sleuth Sherlock hound attached to his desk, and between them they have discovered that the "date stamp" was "Earl's Court, SW5, 2 Oct 1927 ." The PMG further informs me that "the impression was made by machine," which is obvious to the veriest fool, and further, "distinct indications of every detail of a die cannot be ensured by that means"! Further he tells me that all officers employed in "date stamping" are "instructed to obtain legible impressions," and "examination of results shows that the work is reasonably well done". I get letters from USA, Rome, Paris, and Milan, and in only the very rarest cases do I find any difficulty whatever to discover the "date stamp" clear and precise. As a complete amateur I post-marked 150 letters from my parish to the soldiers on the Sunday week after the Armistice, and I managed to do this in under ten minutes. A little training would have speeded up the process. - Rev W Fothergill Robinson, Villa Rampolla, Garda, Verona, Italy. [The Times, Points from Letters, 29 Oct 1927]
