My order arrived at Heathrow at 04:54am Friday 01 December

It was passed to NZPost at 03:00pm Friday 01 December and is now apparently heading to Auckland, New Zealand Smiley

The Royal Mail tracking system helpfully suggests "There may be more information on our delivery partner's website." and provides a link to the NZPost tracking system Smiley

The NZPost tracking system was down earlier this morning Sad but is now back up Smiley

NZPost's tracking system advised "Product not tracked"  Confused

Which apparently means "This product is not a tracked service, but may receive a delivery scan", I particularly 'like' the "may receive a delivery scan" At wits' end

Well, “close enough for gub’nent work” , as we say in this neck of the woods. Cheesy
On the plus side today’s system is much better than the system in the elder days when you would fire off an International Money Order to some indecipherable address in Great Britain in the hopes of receiving something resembling your order four months later (maybe).  Smiley

So true, definitely a modern day first world problem Waiting Waiting

I got mine first orders from the UK sent to an Aunt in the UK who would then send them to me as a gift, thereby avoiding international shipping charges and duty Wink

Amazingly the postal order/IMO system did seem to work remarkably well ordering stuff from the UK from here in NZ back in the mid-late 1970's, though you're quite right DGuy that orders took a LONG time to arrive. IIRC think only one person in the Wellington Warlords was unfortunate enough not to receive their order (25mm Assyrian 4 horse Chariots) - and the manufacturer did sent replacements after being contacted about it that did arrive some months later.

More recently I got Amazon UK to deliver my copy of DBA 3.0 to the manufacturer of the figures for the project, free postage within the UK  Smiley
The manufacturer then kindly posted it to me at cost, saving me about £18 Smiley Smiley

NZPost tracking system down again this morning At wits' end

NZPost's tracking system has been up and down repeatedly but is consistently reporting "Product not tracked" Huh?

While I wait I've continued to research the uniforms of the 26 different regiments that contributed to the American Light Infantry battalions Nerd
I've got most of what I need

NZPost's tracking service is still advising "Product not tracked" Confused

Royal Mail on the other hand is saying that the parcel arrived "In Country" in "Auckland New Zealand" at 06:50am Thursday 07 December Smiley Smiley

Will it make it down to Wellington in time to be delivered to my work tomorrow so I can start sorting over the weekend Nail biting Hurry up!

Another wasted weekend!  Smiley

This order seemed to be following the same trajectory of a previous order you documented.

According to the Royal Mail the parcel was delivered at 12:15pm Friday 08 December, 2.5 hours before I checked our mail room Confused At wits' end

Even the NZPost tracking system tells me it was delivered at that time

There are a couple of clues
Royal Mail: 12:08pm UNDELIVERED ADDRESSEE HAS PO BOX NEW ZEALAND
NZPost: Signed for by 1271, despite it also saying "Signature not required"

My work's Post Office Box number is 1271 so my order is sitting in a scruffy red bag that will be delivered to my work's mail room on Monday morning Waiting Waiting Waiting

I'll hopefully finalise my uniform research on the American Light infantry and probably prepare some more bases.
I also printed off the labels for this project so may also label the already prepared bases

I'll pop in to the local wargames club to see what is going on and have another Big Battle DBA game scheduled for this evening

Not an entirely wasted weekend Wink

I visited my work’s mail room and extracted a small box from the scruffy red that is our PO Box  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Lots of sorting tonight Hurry up!

I was diverted by For King & Parilament and a couple of other things over the weekend, so I haven’t:
- finalised my uniform research on the American Light infantry, Loyalists have just moved to the head of the painting queues
- prepared any more bases, I have enough for a couple of painting batches already done
- labeled any bases yet

I didn't get all the sorting done last night Hypnotized

I had to finish off the French artillery and the Americans this morning

Next step is to pick the first couple of British units and clean up the figures Hurry up!
