Northwest Territories exhibit added to BNAPS website

A four-frame, 64-page exhibit exploring all the closed post offices in the Northwest Territories operated by Canada, the U.S., and Great Britain was recently added to the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) website.

“Many unique or very scarce items and markings are shown,” reads the exhibit’s title page.

  1. Sovereignty (Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachments, weather stations, military bases);
  2. Substances (mining company towns);
  3. Small Centres (small communities in remote locations); and
  4. Subs (special post offices).

O’Reilly, of Yellowknife, N.W.T., is a long-standing member of The RPSC. He was the society’s representative on Canada Post’s Stamp Advisory Committee from 2006-12 and has served on The RPSC’s Geldert Award committee.
