1904 (Apr 28) commercial cover from Wales to a forwarding agent in Calcutta with his cachet on the reverse, forwarded to Japan - a "foreign" destination - so taxed & with 'SINGAPORE TO HONG KONG/29MY/1904' transit b/s, Japanese 'DUE/SEN/...' h/s applied in rosine but the fee not paid & forwarded "co Agents/Christmas Island" with 'VICTORIA/30JU/04/HONG-KONG' & 'TUTICORIN/15JL/04' transit b/s and 'CALCUTTA/20JL04/' arrival b/s from where the agent BK Roy forwarded it to Christmas Island but it was apparently missent to Aden with 'SEA POST OFFICE/JL23/04' b/s, then apparently returned to Calcutta under cover then sent on with 'PENANG TO SINGAPORE/SE3/1904' transit b/s & largely very fine 'CHRISTMAS ISLAND/SE--/1904' arrival cds on the face, further endorsed "[ship] gone to S'pore or Batavia/for repairs", 'SINGAPORE/NO22/1904' arrival b/s, from here returned to the sender with boxed 'REEXPEDIE' h/s, minor soiling as one would expect.

[Colin Riddell states this is the earliest recorded Christmas Island transit cover, and offers a slightly different explanation of the chain of events, which is included for consideration]
