ONE SHILLING & FOURPENCE GREENISH BLUE: 1/4d + KGV d orange pair & Kangaroo 6d brown tied to airmail cover to England by superb 'CREMORNE/ 13MY31/NSW' cds, 'NETHERTON/HUDDERSFIELD' arrival b/s, Cat $400+ on cover. Superb! [There was some confusion about the correct postage for the 1931 experimental air mails to England. This cover, apparently non-philatelic, was franked 1/11d. Ken Sparks stated that the rate was 1/2d per oz; if so, this cover was 9d overpaid. If the standard postage of 2d letter rate + 3d internal airmail per oz x2 + 6d Karachi-London airmail peroz x2 was paid, that amounts to only 1/8d. However, we have recorded many 1/11d covers]
