Regularly, people send us special letters with the request to return them stamped with special stamps of the station. They send a letter to Postboks 0, N-9173 Ny-Ålesund, Norway and enclose a return letter with postage. To accomodate these requests we have made a special stamp with our logo.
Every year between 1 July and 15 August, we will return properly prepared envelopes with our stamps. Apply proper posting for airmail in Norwegian stamps.

This letter was send 16 augustus 1958 by the Dutch journalist and writer Jan P. Strijbos from Ny-Ålesund to the editor of his national newspaper in Amsterdam. The letter is part of the collection of Eddy De Busschere from Assebroek, Belgium.
Below there is also a card from 1930 or 1931, send from Spitsbergen. On this card is written (in Dutch): "On this card you can see the Dutch settlement". This has been Green Harbour, which was sold in 1932 to the Russians. Itis now known as Barentsburg.
