Davaar Island Scout Local Post Issues
Keith Larson

"Sanda and Davaar are small islands off Kintyre at the south west side of Scotland.  The islands are uninhabited apart from Lighthousemen--and I hasten to confirm that the 'Local Carriage Labels' are of no postal use whatsoever.  It is a complete racket and there is absolutely no postal justification whatsoever, for their use.  I regret that there is no such thing as a postally used cover."

David C. Jefferies

Davaar Island issues are one of several Scottish Local Posts with disputed validities.  It is clearly a decision of the individual collector to bannish the Davaar Post to the cinderellas or retain it in the ranks of valid local post issues.
