1896 cover to England endorsed at the top ‘Dongola Province, no stamps procurable’ with a 3 DEC 96 cancel and a boxed ‘T’ tax marking. On arrival in England it was taxed with a 2½d F.B. h/s applied. Cairo 8 XII and Stroud and Woodchester DE 16 96 transit and arrival cancels are on the back. A very small tear is at the top of the cover from opening – hardly noticeable. An appealing cover from the force that was sent to reconquer Sudan. Dongola is in the norther part of Sudan,330 miles north of Khartoum.
