NOTE–July 2021–the page was brought forward from old website. However, this deals with 2004-2005, and was not kept up on website. PLUS, info is now available on NCM website. So I’m not going to post this page on the new website. Since it was created, however, I won’t trash it– Lloyd
In August 2004, the USCS Board of Directors reasserted the need for an annual survey to obtain sample postmarks from all U.S. Navy ships. Paul Bunter, USCS 11072, volunteered to take on this task. The Postmark Survey is usually sent out in early September to all U.S. Navy ships known / suspected to have a post office.
