April 2017:

Bradbury, Wilkinson issues of Trinidad & Tobago

After the success of our book on Trinidad and the one on Tobago, I thought, to complete the trio, I would try to write one on the unified colony of Trinidad & Tobago. Information on the issues printed by De La Rue are easy to come by with the De La Rue Day Books and the Crown Agents Correspondence Books; however, those later issues printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson are more difficult. If any reader has blocks of the 1935 pictorial, KGVI and QEII issues with plate numbers or sheet numbers, I would very much appreciate scans of them. Or if anybody knows where the records of Bradbury, Wilkinson ended up after the purchase of their security printing business by De La Rue, I would be interested to know. Please contact Peter Ford at peterf@bwisc.org if you can help.
