§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
If the senders of parcels to any of His Majesty's ships follow the course advised in the Post Office Guide, namely, to address the parcel merely to the ship without the 206 name of the port, so that the Post Office can send the parcel to the port where the ship is expected to be, no charge is now made for redirection unless the parcel has to be sent abroad. But if the senders do not follow the course advised and address parcels to particular ports, which are not the ports where the ships will be, the ordinary rule respecting the charge for redirection must be observed.
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
As I pointed out in my answer, persons sending parcels to His Majesty's ships should not address them to the ports.
