South Africa 1918 Transvaal Red Cross Aerial Message, Rarity!


  • SA: 1918 AERIAL MESSAGE dropped by Military Aeroplane.
  • As a promotion of the Red Cross military display opening at the Wanderers Ground next day 20th November (until 23rd), on the 19th November Lieutenant Gearing made a special flight over Johannesburg dropping these printed leaflets addressed to "The Public of the Transvaal".
  • This was a novel demonstration of distributing propaganda from the air.
  • The leaflet encourages the public to buy and post the Red Cross Aerial Post Cards.
  • Minor imperfections, generally VF.
  • A major aerophilatelic rarity being one of only three such examples known to us.
