1944 vice-regal cover with printed crown on the flap & endorsed by the Governor "WM Logan/Govt House/Seychelles", to GB with 9c x2 paying surface rate tied by cds of JY27/44 but 2c 30c & 50c added to make up 1r airmail rate & cancelled AU2/44. These envelopes with the printed crown on the flap were a local expedient when the Governor's stationery was exhausted: this & the next lot represent a new discovery not recorded by Hopson & McCloy. [Privileged mail was not subject to censorship. Three squadrons of Catalinas arrived 27.7.1944, one plane departing 3.8.1944]

The service was extended from Seychelles to Ceylon on one occasion only. The return flight arrived from Colombo 16.11.1944 & left the next day for Kisumu. Mail identified as per 'Golden Hind' is rare]
