1930 - 2s 5d insurance fee (registration fee included) paid for £150 insured value + 5½d third step postage – front of envelope was so full that Valeur Déclarée label had to go on the back!

This section gives a selection of rates in force in the UK for post to overseas – currently covering UPU surface rates from 1875 and "zoned" airmail rates from 1947. It should be useful to answer questions about the postage rate paid on an item in the areas that it covers. It is planned to expand this over time with further sections (pre-UPU rates, pre-1947 airmail rates) to make it more comprehensive.

Assistance is welcomed – indeed solicited – from any collectors who can make additional rate information available in a suitable format. Please with details.
