Manuscript cancels in indelible pencil comprising "405/Allawoona", "Halidon" x3, "Mingary", "Paruna", "Perponda", "Sandalwood" & "Wynarka" all on Roos &/or KGV frankings, also "Alawoona" on Shierlaw front. These are similar to Victorian examples that we know were applied at the GPO to uncancelled registered mail. We are confident that is the case here also, that they were endorsed at the Adelaide GPO. Ex Dr K Pennycuick.
