Postal Museum Website confuses your scribe

Well, I confess I was truly taken in by The Postal Museum webshop, and readers who really know their Post an Go quickly spotted that I had erred big time!  

As you know I have been less enthusiastic about the additional inscriptions available from around the country including the Postal Museum.  But checking their shop for the new postcard pack, I noticed the mail coaches and totally forgot that I had reported the issue last year.  That will teach me to double check what ought to be reliable sources. 

Apologies and thanks to the regular readers who commented on this original 'news posted yesterday. 


  1. Looks the same as issued on 1st April last year.

    Ian, I'm confused. Isn't London's Postal Museum currently closed and not scheduled to re-open until later this year? If so, where exactly can one purchase this new design? Is it only available from Royal Mail in Edinburgh?

  3. If it's an April Fool's joke, you got me!. Friday April 1st was last year - this year it's a Saturday.
