|Q112b March, 2013 non-member Disinfected
I have been sitting for 20 years on a cover which was in a collection I bought for other good items. I did not understand where and why it was disinfected, but hoped that another would turn up. I am still hoping The cover is obviously genuine, and I do not think the cachet has been added by a collector or dealer - why apply a one-off to a scruffy envelope and across a tear? My best guess is that it came from an infectious diseases ward in a hospital. I hope someone can give me a lead on it. What mail from British military hospitals in 1940 is recorded ? The cancellation on the stamp looks like M.P.O. / E.601, but it is not clear, the backstamp is E.602.
