Description

1943 (Jul 9) Stampless Posts & Telegraphs Department, Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika printed Airgraph envelope only (no airgraph) with framed G /11 (CCSG FH V11) hand stamp & on reverse Controle Posta Militaire (CCSG FL 111) label tied pointed oval Ouvert /Par /Autorit’e Militaire 9CCSG FH 1V) with Diego Suarez (7 Jul) dispatch & Tananarive (15 Jul) transit cds.
……………………………………………………………………………………
The CCSG as at 2000 records earliest recorded date of G /11 (CCSG FH V11) as 31 May 1944 this extends that date to 7 Jul 1943 with this used in the period where apparently British & or French censorship existed simultaneously…Pity that the airgraph itself has not survived but still an interesting item with the price reflected wih missing content
