"Don't think there were Bluies as early as mid 60s. I was in Sharjah 70-71 and we didn't have them then (and also had a postal strike to contend with!). First time I saw them was in Norn Iron in (?) 80 or 81?"

I recall 'Blueys' from the 50s/60s. Although they were called 'AEROGRAMS' then I seem to remember. I think they had to be purchased as they were prepaid and and there 'Par Avion' logo. Apart from the prepaid stamp and maybe the logo I think they were the same as what came to be known as Blueys during the early days of the Falklands operations. - Blue lightweight paper that was folded and stuck down at the edges.
