S.S. EMPIRE STAR. 1938 cover to England that was carried on the S.S. Empire Star, with a DANNEVIRKE MY 30 1938 cancel. The stamp has been washed of in the incident which is believed to be that a postal bag fell into water after being accidently dropped when unloading. A violet boxed ‘DAMAGED BY SEA-WATER’ was applied, most probably in London. An uncommon incident.
