First Known Stamps!  These are From Kirby Crawford, who was with the team that visited the island for a year in 1968 (Click Here for that page)...  Kirby writes:  "Here's a couple of scans of stamps that I mailed from the plantation in July of '69 to my mother in Cumberland, Wisconsin.  To mail letters then, you just walked over to the tally house, picked up the cancellation stamp and canceled your own letters, left them in the box until the Nordvaer would come in from Mahe.  Best Regards,  Kirby C."

Editor's Note - in those days, BIOT used stamps from the colonies of the Seychelles, Aldabra, etc., and simply superimposed the logo "B.I.O.T." on them.
