    I just ordered the pictorials for Newport News VA post office. We have an arrangement there to provide them and member Leonhard Venne will go there and service your covers. Leonhard Venne deserves your support. Perhaps include a cover for him when you send yours. They will all be mailed out soon, but don’t get ahead of yourself, only send covers after the anniversary date. I would upload the images but I can’t figure that out yet. Wish we could figure out what to do at Groton CT.

    I will add the images in another post since I just figured this out!

    FYI: I sent a certified letter to the Connecticut Valley District of the USPS in Hartford, CT last week. I spelled out our problems with Groton in great detail. No replay yet but I am watching my emails and my rural mailbox every day.

    I am at a standstill on why the Groton CT post office has been MIA with regard to pictorial postmarks. None have been acknowledged for 2021. All required paperwork was submitted. At this point I can only suggest that perhaps if collectors complaints were received we may bet a resolution to this problem. The best two places that could intervene would be these addresses. I aks that you take a few minutes and write to both addresses and explain any requests you made and any covers that are missing. If we do this we might get results.

    Just wanted to see if I could upload a cover that just came back from USS DETROIT LCS 7. I found the crest on the Internet and save it and added it to the cover.

    Looks like the max that can be uploaded to a message is five images. There is sixth image. The ASHEVILLE image will not be that large.

    Some nice pix, Rich. This seems to be very easy to use.

    Rich/All, In an Aug 17th email, Lloyd noted that only 5 images could be uploaded on any single post. The pictorial cancels look good.
