I'm currently working my way through a backlog of emails and have arrived in July 2016 (!). And that's where I rediscovered this delightful little film clip which I thought I'd share with you.
As you can see, it briefly shows an engraver working on the 1945 Australian issue marking the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester in Australia. This here is the end product:
Now the catalogue states that two engravers worked on the stamp: Frank Davies Manley and T. C. Duffell. So who could have been the one in the film clip? I could only find a photograph of Manley and nothing of the mysterious Duffell:
You could argue that the man in the film clip does look like the man in the Manley photograph so chances are it was him, but I would love to be proven wrong!
If you are the owner of this video and you object to it being shown here, please get in touch so I can rectify the matter.
