Abstract: We thank Mr Hadrian Wood for his continuous encouragement to publish this study and our brother in law, Mr D.J. Agius, for his help. Since we started collecting Postmen's Personal handstamps we have decided to study deeply into this important section of postal history. Our aim is to study each individual number separately, collecting information from every item that we come across, such as the addresses and the receiving dates together with the corresponding PPH. Then, we draw our conclusions. But the work is very taxing and time-consuming, both the items and the relative information are hard to acquire and we hope that one day we will be able to finish our work. Our final goal is to trace the postal delivery route of the PPH during the period of their use. As a prologue to our long assignment we thought we might as well publish a short study with some information we think is vital to the postal historian and collectors of PPH. [excerpt]
