1939 incoming cover from St. Vincent with a 1½d cancelled COLONAIRE 18 AU 39. While the cover was in transit WWII broke out and on arrival an oval ‘PASSED BY CENSOR’ handstamp applied. This was a provisional cachet and is the finest of only three covers recorded. An important censored cover, particularly from a small village in St. Vincent.
