GB c.1918 SG362 Cover censored by U.S. Navy
Stock Code: P190007963
c.1918 Maritime mail. Very fine cover to Edgbaston, England posted from overseas bearing a 1½d red-brown tied by a black circular ring dumb cancel, with a superb "Passed by Censor/Anchor 31/U.S.N" cachet at left. With no other postal markings the only clue to the origin of this cover is a manuscript note "The Sea Hawk" on reverse which probably refers to the USS Sea Hawk, a small armed motorboat which operated from Dec. 1917 in the Boston area then later in Florida waters until lost in a Hurricane off the Florida keys in Sep. 1919. A most unusual cover worthy of further research.
