Johnson Philatelics receives Johnson’s Post mail

Envelope with Johnson's Post Cancellation

Johnson’s Post Cancellation

With the South African postal strike finally starting to lift, smaller cities such as Port Elizabeth are receiving masses of mail which has been delayed in Johannesburg and other sorting centres. Amongst the copious amounts of envelopes, we were delighted to discover one which proudly bears a JOHNSONS POST cancellation. Fellow philatelist, Joh Groenewald RDPSA, generously sent an item from Johnson’s Post near Mosselbay to Mr Richard Johnson, Director of Johnson Philatelics, who did not know this cancellation existed. Mr Groenewald is a well-known philatelic author in South Africa and is renowned for his knowledge of the Boer War. A list of his books can be found here.
