TELEGRAPHIC MESSAGES ON POSTAL CARDS: 1907 (Apr 21) use of Western Australia 1d with Two-Line Instructions, to Scotland with Perth WA cds of 22AP07. Message: "From Cocos. Wrote by Island sailing vessel which sailed for Batavia yesterday...". Acquired at a Perth auction in 2008 for $2420. [Believed to be the earliest such Cocos cable message card]

Brief messages were cabled to Perth where they were transcribed onto Postal Cards for onforwarding. Most such cards are from the period 1907-11 and addressed to Malta. Any other usages are rare. We note that Kim Dwyer had only two such cards, both from the Malta correspondence, as did David Flaat (one of them Ex Kim Dwyer).
