Apollo First Day Covers


 

In his capacity as Honeysuckle Creek’s Admin Officer from 1970 (and as Carnarvon’s Admin Officer before that), Milton Turner co-ordinated the production of First Day Covers celebrating the Apollo missions, and also received covers from elsewhere.

Here are some First Day Covers concerning Apollo. Addresses have been removed – and higher resolution scans are available.

With thanks to Milton Turner. Scans by Colin Mackellar.
