Saw one interesting cover in one of the blogs , thought of sharing here the same...
Roo 2½d on 1914 WWI censored cover to SWEDEN. Which missed the ship!
Clean and fresh and attractive – especially for well over 100 years old.
Marked as Per ‘R.M.S. Mongolia’, and neat typed address to a Timber merchant, in small town Sundsvall in central Sweden.
Stamp is in SUPERB condition or wartime travel of 10,000 miles, – clean and well centred, with clear Sydney machine cancel of December 1, 1914.
‘OPENED BY CENSOR’ tape and a handwritten note on reverse, ‘retuned from Censor too late for dispatch’ with Sydney Ship Room cds on back of 2 DEC -14.
Commercial Mail from here to anywhere except UK and USA and NZ (or Switzerland for the huge amount of Red Cross mail) in WWI is scarce. To SWEDEN .. nearly unheard of.
