Walter Hess Covers to Argentina, British Guiana, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, Venezuela and Brazil.

Dr Walter Hess was the Colonial Surgeon to the British Government in the Bahamas during the First World War, and an avid stamp collector.


He serviced many philatelically inspired covers, especially in 1930, and plastered with War Tax and Red Cross stamps, to commemorate the First Flights from Nassau to Miami, and then on to various destinations in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Canada. Such covers were addressed to Dr Hess himself, c/o the postmasters at these destinations, all of which were returned to him “not known” or with other similar wording.


There are 32 known destinations, including Miami itself, and all covers have the postmark 2nd January 1930, with the exception of Uruguay (9th January 1930) Venezuela (30th April 1930) and Brazil (16th November 1930).


I have covers to 24 destinations but to complete the collection I need those to Argentina, British Guiana, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, Venezuela and Brazil. These are proving elusive. If any members have any such covers they would like to dispose of, please let me know.
