* A note on British first day postmarks:
Along with the Bureau and other official FDPs, there are ofen a number of commemorative postmarks associated with a stamp issue. In addition to cancelling FDCs these additional postmarks can also be used to cancel mail franked with other stamps than those from the the issue the postmark is commemorating. Due to the obvious connection to the stamp issue we have decided to list them as FDPs rather than commemorative postmarks.

* The following abbreviations are used for standard NVI-'denominations', eventually followed by the maximum weight in grams - e.g- "E100" means "European letter up to 100g"
2nd 2nd class normal letter (up to 100g from [date])
1st 1st class normal letter (up to 100g from [date])
1stSF 1st class normal letter Recorded/Signed For (up to 100g from [date])
2ndL 2nd class large letter (up to 100g from [date])
1stL 1st class large letter Recorded/Signed For (up to 100g from [date])
