Hi Phil -

A more experienced person familiar with these may help, but as you know there's not much to go on. I thought I might see something ' simple ' searching England and Wales Post Office Numerals, but got returned "Ford" is found on 347 pages! Sorry....

Good luck - Wm.

Hi Phil,

It could be Harbertonford in Devon as that is a known UDC on 1d reds, albeit with another cancellation. Here is another; plate 71, I believe.
