1933 (May 26) long Vacuum Oil cover (266x114mm) to Burma with 6d brown Kangaroo 'VOCo' perfin & KGV 1d green tied by 'LATE FEE/SPENCER ST VIC' cds, TAA airmail label, 'RANGOON/16JUN33' arrival b/s, vertical fold at left. The rate was 2d per ounce Empire rate + 3d per oz domestic airmail supplement + 1d late fee. The postage paid does not conform to this rate structure & the 21 days transit time probably indicates carriage by sea at 2d per ounce x3 + 1d late fee = 7d.

[The French Ligne P was a feeder service between Batavia & Singapore only. Raymond Salles at Vol V page 125 states (translated) "...the small number of pieces known makes it impossible to reconstruct the complete schedules from January 1867 to the end in 1884". In almost every case, Salles illustrates and quotes a price or gives a rating for every marking. For Ligne P, he doesn't even provide an illustration, an obvious indication of great rarity]

This is one of the earliest inwards items to New Guinea that we have seen. The addressee, Dr Carl Weinland was Medical Officer with the Neu-Guinea Compagnie. Was he the same person as "Dr Wendland", referred to several times in "Governor in New Guinea" by Albert Hahl (1937, English translation by Sack & Clark 1980)?]
