Philately will get you...

... anywhere in the UK, and probably by the next day, for the price of a 1st class postage stamp.

On the 4th July 2013, Jersey Post issued a set of stamps to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the British Dragonfly Society (BDS).

There were several choices: a First Day Cover; a set of mint stamps; or a set of Cancelled to Order (CTO) stamps. That last one translates as franked but not on an envelope, I think.

Not understanding the jargon, I opted for all three, to cover the options!

The Tense Towers Odometer certainly read full scale deflection on the day that this little lot landed on the door mat.
