GB 1911 SG322 Cover - Windsor to London Aerial Post

Stock Code: P223002594

1911 First United Kingdom Aerial Post. Very fine example of the official postcard in brown (Emergency printing) prepaid by a ½d Green (Die 1a) neatly cancelled by the Windsor datestamp (Die 2) for the return flight on SP.16.1911. The flight carrying the first mails from Windsor to London was scheduled for Saturday 16 September 1911, but flying conditions were not favourable. Much to the disappointment of the crowds, it was decided reluctantly to postpone the Windsor to London flight until the next day. The bag of mail was carried by aviator Clement Greswell flying a Blériot No 1.
