Ref: A3916
  • £55.00

1942 censored cover to England with a ½d and 2d cancelled by a SYDNEY 27 JLY 1942 roller cancel. The cover was opened and resealed by the censor. The cover was in a ship incident and has a violet two line ‘DAMAGED BY / SEA WATER’ cachet on the front. To date nothing is known as to what the incident was, but it is very conceivable that it was on a torpedoed ship.
