In 1953 British European Airways extended their letter service to the Channel Islands .  Major Wood extended his postal service so that a letter could be carried by boat for delivery to the BEA office in St Peter Port.  The postage was 5d and was achieved by overprinting a special printing of the 2d map definitive.  This service continued until July 1956.
