I collect pretty much from anywhere and everywhere now, but mostly from countries my husband makes ham radio contacts with as he then gets confirmation of the contact and I get the envelope it comes in. Mind you, I am thinking of giving up on keeping Japanese stamps as he seems to have an awful lot of contacts with that country and I am running out of space for all the stamps. Some other countries would be USA, Russia, Eastern European countries, Germany, France, Netherlands, Canada.

I collect France. I started collecting when I was about ten years old and my father gave me a bunch of commonwealth stamps. Another kid at school came back from his holidays with a collection of Napoleons and I swapped my commonwealth with his Napoleons. 42 years later I have a reasonable collection. 1930 to 1960 is nearly complete but the early years are short of mint stamps and the last few years (2000 onwards) are very patchy.

Hi everybody,

I'm from India and collect everything! I am looking for the last GB air-letters (both definitive and Christmas issues) and would be happy if anyone can send me a visual and give me the dates of issue.

Strangely, Royal Mail says they were discontinued in 2006, whereas others on various forums say 2012! No visuals can be had from either source, so I'm flummoxed!

Hope someone out here can help.

I didn't realise that airmail letter forms had been discontinued. I just thought people didn't use them anymore. Presumably if someone put one of these in the post with extra stamps on it would be mailed to the addressee?

Air letter forms are still available in Thailand. As are international reply coupons.

I'm not sure about air mail letter forms - my husband has some, but these could be old - but internatiomal reply coupons are definitely obtainable in the UK.

Here is a UPU list of countries where international reply coupons are available. I am afraid GB or the UK do not feature in this list.

Just another example of how Royal Mail does not really consider the needs of its customers.
