1943 (Apr 16) registered airmail to GB with 2c plus 9c 20c & 30c pairs, very fine strike of the by-now worn 'PASSED BY CENSOR/-------No 2' cachet (#H.IV.2a) in black, minor blemishes. [Hopson & McCloy state at page 54 "Two examples...are recorded". From July 1942, the airmail rate was reduced to an all-inclusive fee of 1r. This cover may have been carried in a closed bag - which would explain the absence of transit markings - from Seychelles by RAF Catalina that flew to Diego Suarez on 19.4.1943]
