1920s Falkland Islands - Late 1920s envelope to Roy Cove franked with a 1d cancelled by the double oval POSTED ON BOARD canceller, without date, that has had the R.M.S. COLUMBUS removed.  These were only known used to Roy Cove between 1926 and 1931. After the withdrawal of  the H.M.C.S. Afterglow in 1926,  the RMS Falkland was bought back into service to serve the out-laying districts in the Falklands. Between 1914 and 1918, the old canceller, which was originally that of the R.M.S. Columbus, had been used on the R.M.S. Falkland with a straight line R.M.S. FALKLAND handstamp. In the late 1920s only the oval POSTED ON BOARD was used. A very scarce cover with this marking.
