The real cost of a stamp
The Society recently received a letter from Neath Port Talbot Borough Council telling us of a forthcoming meeting of the local history forum of which we are members. This arrived about a month late and carried its own little piece of history. It had been posted to Resolfen but lacked a post code, it had subsequently been redirected by Royal Mail to the USA. This. on arriving in the New World was immediately despatched to the Old, this time to Hungary!!!!. Luckily our friends at Magyar Post knew what they were doing and sent the letter back to Wales !!!!!!
No wonder the cost of a first class stamp is now 60p!!!!! Needless to say we did not attend the meeting.
