Some Postal History and covers from Mevu.

In 1970 when we first became an independent country the mail services were run by the Government Post, a department of the Republic's administration. Later, the Antarctic Postal Corporation was formed, and the Government Post, as well as the Post Offices of several other Antarctic states, were handed over to it.
