Description: 1944 (Nov 30) airgraph form from the Seychelles Postmaster to GB, advising of a rate reduction - from Sep 1944 - from 50c to 18c for the service. Flown per 'Golden Hind' service. The only civilian airgraph known to both our vendor & a major collector of airgraphs. [Airgraphs were introduced by 27.5.1942. Examples from the Seychelles are extremely scarce, with most of those recorded being RAF types. The rate reduction coincided with the introduction of the 18c aerogramme rate]
