[According to Post Office Regulations - not seen for the WWI period - the lowest cost for a parcel was 6d & registration was 3d. This article was clearly posted at concessional rates that applied to the mailing of effects of service personnel. Based on other similar items seen by us, we believe that the parcel rate was 3d per unit of weight x2 + 1d registration + d war tax]
