I understand a batch of 1000 of these postcards were produced and all were signed by the ten members of the expedition (some were also signed by the expedition's doctor, Dave Lambert). Sadly, many of these postcards never reached their destination. Left at a post office in Kathmandu before the expedition set off for Annapurna, many were stolen, the stamps steamed off and the cards thrown away. Ian Clough was in charge of supplies and arrived late in Kathmandu. The expedition members completed the signatures by using a rubber stamp of his signature.
