TRINIDAD postal history
1886 use of QV ½d Post Card pmk'd A/JY 23 86 locally to Miss Palmer, Palm Grove, Princestown, reverse headed "P. of Spain 22.7.86" with message reading "No visit expected, as cause was removed on 13th inst.; but all possible precautions shall be taken to protect, With love A xxxxx" Text surrounded by a gibbet, cannon, blunderbuss, revolver, cudgel, mantrap, swords, and a barrel marked "Y NAM" (dy namite). Overall toning.
The text may only be cryptic humour but might have a connection with the Ordinance of 1879 whereby a Volunteer Corps was raised with one Company under Captain Wilson permitted to use the Police headquarters for parades. In 1885, the year before this card was written, the Volunteers’ own headquarters, the Drill Hall in Tragarete Road, was opened by Governor Havelock.
