South Africa 1918 Small Wings Card on Cape Xmas Flight, Rarity


SA: 1918 "Make your 6d fly". CAPE TOWN CHRISTMAS FLIGHT, SMALL WINGS CARD CARRIED: The Transvaal-intended small wings card, light blue printing, franked KGV 1d (ex booklet) tied cds 23 DEC B18. Addressed to County Down, Ireland, the 1d franking paying overseas postage. Superb, fresh, crisply cancelled card perfectly showing off the 23rd December datestamp. An exceedingly rare representation of this seldom seen anomaly whereby a Transvaal card was carried back and flown in the Cape, especially so for this Christmas flight which was in any event poorly supported with few cards flown. Distinct possibility of a near-unique representation, not previously seen by us. An exhibition piece for these 1918 flights.
