Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

I NOTE the com­ment from J Smith (“Snail mail shame”, Opin­ion, April 4) re­gard­ing the lengthy de­lay in re­ceiv­ing mail from the UK.

I am still wait­ing for an en­ve­lope with my tax in­for­ma­tion to ar­rive. It was posted at Fre­man­tle Post Of­fice on Septem­ber 23, 2016. When I en­quired with Aus­tralia Post about the miss­ing en­ve­lope, I was told there was noth­ing they could do as the item was not tracked.

The en­ve­lope con­tained a manila folder and was about 2cm thick – not ex­actly some­thing that could be mis­placed eas­ily.

I did ask Aus­tralia Post if they still use camel trains to trans­port their mail.
