Beschreibung:

1898 (7 JAN) stampless O.H.M.S. cover to London endorsed at upper right „Stamps unobtainable“ with very fine strike of type 6 BURUTU boxed ds (sans-serif caps) in dull violet applied in transit alongside. Charged postage due on arrival with very fine „5d“ tax handstamp at upper right, Liverpool entry c.d.s (31 Jan) and London delivery d.s. on reverse; the cover with some faults though still attractive and very scarce.

Note: The sender Lt. Col. Pilcher, was the commanding officer of the 1st Battalion West African Frontier Force.
