Aden Paquebot

I haven't seen anything similar before with an Egyptian stamp, being the 1936 15 mills Agriculture issue, with 2 different Aden postmarks both dated March 12, 1936. I picked this up at a local stamp show not knowing a thing about it. Can anyone shed some light on this cover? Thank you.

The Aden Paquebot mark is in 'Ocean Mails' cica 1960s by Philip Cockrill. It is given as a Port Arrival Cancellation, code A63. The illustration shown in the book has the date 30 APR 33.

Possibly the letter was written on ship and posted when in Aden Port.
