1941 wrapper to London with a 2As and a 3Ps tied by Calcutta 20 MAR 1941 cancels. The wrapper was in an incident, possibly a torpedoed ship, and a violet boxed ‘DAMAGED BY IMMERSION / IN SEA WATER’ was applied. A 15 MAY arrival cancel is on the front of the wrapper, so there must have been some considerable delay caused by the incident. Although other covers have been recorded from this incident, no ship has been identified.
