PAPUA - 1901-1942 The BNG & Papua Stamps Period - Postal History
AEROPHILATELY: 1935 (Sep 27) Port Moresby-Darwin AAMC #P90 with 2d Bird & 6d Air Mail manuscript cancelled "A11-1/Port Moresby/28-9-35/[signature]" overstruck with 'DARU/ 28SE35/PAPUA' cds, Darwin b/s of 27NO35, vertical fold & minor blemishes. An enigma. [The AAMC states Hempel departed Moresby 27/9/1935 but this cover suggests he left a day later. Why two months to reach Darwin?]
