Additional Information

Fifty years ago, Jersey Post was fundamentally a postal operator delivering traditional mail products to its customers. Today it is a global logistics business for which delivering mail is only one of a number of services offered.

In 1969, the British Post Office became a Corporation and the States of Jersey took the opportunity to gain postal independence from Britain. With a short, simple ceremony at the head Post Office, The Head Postmaster, Mr Leslie Cockbill, on behalf of The British Post Office, formally handed over to the new Director of Jersey Postal Administration with the shaking of hands.

Eight stamps depict the growth and change that has happened within Jersey Post during the last fifty years.
