1942 Samoa Ship Incident - 1942 censored envelope to Scotland that was involved in a maritime incident. A violet straight line DAMAGED AT SEA cachet is across the front of the cover and partially ties the stamp. Besides being censored in New Zealand and the U.K. And resealed with censor tape, it also has had Found Open or Damaged and Officially Secured tape affixed to the base of the cover. Hoggarth and Gwynn record two covers known, both from New Zealand, and that the incident happened in December 1942. This is the third cover recorded and the only one out of Samoa. The incident, of which there are no details known as it was a wartime incident, must have happened after it left New Zealand. Very scarce.
