No new posts Promotional Postal Orders
At various times from 1984 the Post Office contracted with some service providers to issue "Promotional Postal Orders". These were often, for example, as a cash refund when buying particular products, and had the company name printed on them. Howard Lunn issued a catalogue of the issues 1984-1995: some issues are straight forward, some have specialist details such as different watermarks.
