LUNDY ISLAND. 1936 cover to Lundy Island with a KE VIII 1d and ½d tied by CAPE TOWN PAQUEBOT 6 OCT 36 canceller. This letter was posted on board the Dunvegan Castle on her maiden voyage. Addressed to Lundy Island via R Boyd at Heanton Aerodrome – he was the pilot. A Lundy Island Puffin stamp and an Atlantic Coast Air Services ½d label have been affixed and cancelled before delivery. The cover also says ‘ c/o Mr F Gade’ – he was the postmaster. A very appealing and interesting rare item to Lundy Island which was served by the Atlantic Coast Air Services. Lundy is 11 miles off the Devon coast..
