AUSTRALIA 1920 SG. Cover

AUSTRALIA 1920 SG. Cover
1920 (26 Feb) cover to "Miss M. Longbottom, c/o Agent General for Sth Australia, The Strand, London", flown on the epic first England to Australia flight by Ross and Keith Smith (12 Nov - 10 Dec 1919), bearing a very fine example of the special blue vignette, tied by superb "FIRST AERIAL MAIL/RECEIVED/GREAT BRITAIN TO AUSTRALIA" oval ds, with superb strike of 3-line "PER/VICKERS 'VIMY' AEROPLANE/TO AUSTRALIA" cachet in blue at lower left (which was applied to less than half of the covers by Ross Smith according to Eustis). 364 covers flown, this being No 20 (incorrectly noted as Miss P Longbottom) in the Eustis listing. Exceptional quality for this important airmail rarity.
