Herm Island

Herm-Island-Flag-and-Coat

Herm Island is one of the Channel  Islands, located northwest of France and south of England. It has a population of 50, and is visited by 60 000 people a year.

In May 1925 the British Post Office opened a sub office on the island which was open for only half an hour a day.  However this was eventually closed in 1938.  In 1948 the tenant of Herm asked for the post office to be re-opened.  This was refused so he established his own postal service from Herm to Guernsey, where the mail was then processed for onward transmission.  Stamps were produced for sale from 1949 until 1969.  However it was necessary for all mail to use Guernsey stamps as well.  From October 1969 the new Post Office Board opened an official sub Post Office where only Guernsey stamps were allowed to be used and it became an offence to use the local Herm issues.  The local stamps were still cancelled ‘Herm Island” using a metal stamp.

We were unable to find any reference in Stanley Gibbons for the following stamps and realize they could be Cinderella Stamps.
