I was recently fortunate enough to be able to purchase a copy of the 1935 Silver Jubilee threehalfpence stamp on cover cancelled with the special event hand-stamp "DUXFORD A'DME/CAMBRIDGE/6 JY/35". This was used for the Silver Jubilee RAF Review that year. There were also a Review of the Fleet at Spithead on 16 July, and a Military Review at Aldershot on 13 July, for the same occasion. Does anyone know of any special cancellations in use for those two events, please. It seems ludicrous that the RAF should have a special postmark, but the other two events were not commemorated in the same way! None of these events are mentioned in the 1991 edition of the book "Special Event Postmarks of the United Kingdom"!
