GB 1924 Cover Birmingham Ship cancel
Stock Code: P201007465
1924 Maritime Mail. Very fine envelope sent from H.M.S. Capetown on active service in the West Indies (from Jan 26th to Feb 4th) addressed to The Admiral Superintendant, H.M.S. Dockyard, Portsmouth. The envelope would most likely been placed in the mail on one of the West Indies islands which was then forwarded on to Plymouth via America, when there was an abundance of mailbags to be sorted a portion of the overflow was taken to Birmingham to be sorted, should any of the mail be uncancelled they would have been so with a "BIRMINGHAM SHIP" double ring datestamp. A fantastic maritime item and very rare cancellation.
