  Issue 11 - ERROR 
Christmas 1978 ERROR!
01/12/1978
A mistake occurred in the initial printing of this issue addressing Patriarch Josyf Slipyj incorrectly as Archbishop Josyf Slipyj.
This error was picked up quickly, the faulty issue destroyed and the whole run was then reprinted with the correct addressing of the Patriarch.
It seems however that some incorrect versions accidentally made their way to be released, (inc numbered sheetlets and FDC's). The number involved was relatively few so these incorrect versions need be looked out for!

Vatican Commemorative Cover
20/12/1978
An extremely rare cover with less than 20 having been specially provided & addressed by the Vatican as personal commemoratives for the HRP Royal Family, marking the death of Pope John Paul I.
Only 1000 of  Issue 11 FDC's were personally carried to the Vatican by the Bishop's Chancery of Melbourne Legate to the Hutt River Principality (as it was known at the time) Rev. Father Santiago Crespo. The cover was affixed and postmarked by the Vatican Post Office by Command of the Vatican, with a commemorative postage stamp of Pope John Paul I commemorating his rule from 26 August 1978 until his death 28 September 1978. These covers were offered to the public as a special "one per order" deal.

**Cover pictured is one of the "Special Vatican Provided covers"
which was owned by the late Mother of HRH Prince Leonard**

Vatican Visit by HRH Prince Leonard
 20/09/1979
This is an outstanding and rare event issue and what is believed to be the first time a Pope has allowed his head to be placed on a stamp alongside a Sovereigns head.
A small number of covers were carried to the Vatican by HRH Prince Leonard and whilst attending there they were stamped FD issue on Sept 20 and at the same time were overprinted with the Vatican visa and Vatican postage stamp, at least two different Vatican postage stamps were used by order of the Vatican Authorities to acknowledge & commemorate the Royal Visit.

There were only a small number of this issue treated in this way and many of those were presented at the Vatican dinner to attendee's (mainly Bishops) by HRH Prince Leonard.

Commemorative Flight Covers/Postmark
29/11/1981
ROYAL HUTT RIVER PROVINCE AIR FORCE
On the 29th November 1981 HRH Prince Leonard flew into the Royal Fogarty Field at Melton Victoria, in a Fuji 200 full aerobatic plane which was the No. 1 Plane commissioned into the Royal Hutt River Province Air Force.

A special cancellation stamp stating, "AIRMAIL ON INAUGURAL FLIGHT OF ROYAL HUTT RIVER PROVINCE AIR FORCE TO ROYAL FOGARTY FIELD 29 NOV 1981" was used on a standard envelope embossed to cancel 10th Anniversary stamps of HRH Prince Leonard.  Three envelopes had two postage stamps of different denomination and a fourth carried three stamps:
($1.50c, 5c), (50c, 75c), (10c, 22c), (5c, 22c, 22)
 respective costs were; ($1.60), ($1.40), ($0.50c), ($0.50c).

A Fourth envelope was also produced, in lesser number, utilising the Australian 22c pre-stamped envelope "50th Anniversary of Sir Francis Chichester's flight Across the Tasman"
by affixing a 10c HRP stamp and the special cancellation dated 29/11/81

These envelopes with the large clear impressive cancellation stamp are without question a very historical Philatelic collectors item.  Any one cover or the full set of four was made available to the public from the covers which HRH brought back to the Hutt River Province carried with him on that inaugural flight.
