Description:

1892 (May 24) Soldier’s cover to India endorsed « From Syad Sajjad Husain. Hospital Asstistant. Hong Kong Regt Hong Kong – China » and countersigned by the Commanding Officer (Surgeon Captain A.L. Borradaile), addressed to the Treasurer of the « Deoli Irregular force », franked at the concessionary rate by 1882-96 2c carmine tied by « B62 » obliterator and despatch cds, slight cover faults though a very rare concessionary rate usage, ex Gerald Sattin.

Note: Use of the « B62 » obliterator was discontinued in 1885. It was, however, re-employed in an emergency when there was a large increase in correspondence with extra staff engaged and insufficient circular cancellers available for their use. Such a situation arose with the arrival of the nearly one thousand strong Hong Kong Regiment and soldiers writing to tell their families of their safe arrival.
