Edward A. Peake (1912-2004), USCS #646, was and original member of Battleship Oregon Chapter #22. He was the exchange manager in 1934. Besides assisting with chapter covers, he also did a few cachets himself. Not much is known of his cachet work, but they often were hand drawn and colored. Probably only a handful few of each were produced. Sometimes the name of William Ormandy is listed with cachets that Peake sponsored. Ormandy was not a USCS member--probably someone who lived in the Portland, Oregon area. Peake was a long time postal employee, and a WWII army veteran. He died in 2004, probably the last living member of the old Battleship Oregon Chapter.

Cachets should be listed in chronological order based on earliest known usage. Use the postmark date or best guess. This applies to add-on cachets as well.
