Hi,

Do you have a phone Directory for the area.

Look up a retirement village. Ring one of them
and tell them your problem & that you will post them some money to do it.

And Hope like hell Royal Mail manage to get a postmark on it.

I know its a bit cheeky but it sounds like your running out of time

Ebay item 201944688077 is a an old style card railway ticket for a first class single journey from Churston to Padddington (London):

It's a post-war item (with "British Railways Board" on the reverse) but it has a certain charm and would be easy to mount in a display.

The original ticket price was 75 shillings.

Trivia: Churston is the 'C' in Agatha Christie's "The A.B.C. Murders" (A = Andover, B = Bexhill) :D

Hahaha.. yes.. Doncaster too... My exhibit is to recreate the ABC Murders as done by the tv adaptation. It's starting to come together.

Thank you for the ideas

The exhibit received a Vermeil medal. Very pleased for the first showing.

Highlight was the Churston postmark
