Ilminster from WW2 onwards

The first item was a key part of  life in WW II, being a National Service certificate of registration, in this case for an Agricultural Worker.

The postal service carried on through WW 2 using the same cancels and postal stationery.

Below is an Advice of Delivery of a Registered Letter, sent within Ilminster in March 1946 - it travelled a distance of about a third of a mile.

The handstamps continued to be used, here is the "ILMINSTER / SOMERSET" double circle double-arc cancel in use from 1954 to 1969.
