    Surface Mail from Canada
    From: David Pike

    My copy of the 1963 Edition of HO216 finally arrived by surface mail from Canada.  I purchased it 24th December 2020 and it arrived today 13th March 2021.  That’s 79days from Canada to the UK.  Can anyone suggest how long it might have taken in 1921 and 1821?  The book cost $14.99 Canadian and the surface postage was $30 Canadian.  Air mail would have been around $61.76 Canadian.  The problem is, I can no longer remember why I bought it.  The good thing is it arrived in excellent condition.  It looks as if the previous owner wasn’t very diligent.  I doesn’t appear to have been opened since it was printed in 1963.  DaveP
