Thanks Jon.
Me too.
It is interesting to follow the journey of philatelic material.

I found it in a box of junk, at auction, or passed on from colleagues.
I mount it with information,
when I pass on in the tin Urn, hopefully it will go to an Indian specialist, when my stuff goes up for sale.
That way important material filters the way up to good collections.

Yepp, and with a good write-up like yours one would think the next owner does not ditch the card back into another box of junk

Postal Rate: The single foreign postal card rate to England was 1A from January 1,1891 to August 31,1921, which was paid by affixing Br. India 1907 1A SG 150.

Cancelation: It is Smith type A24A combined date stamp and obliterator (outer circle diameter: 27.5mm-31mm; inner circle diameter: 19mm-22.5mm; central date band height: 10.5mm-12.5mm) of Pune GPO (est. 1805).

Though this very type is found used from early 1896 to late 1926, it is officially first recorded in the PO General Order No. 15 dt. September 17,1897.

This type with movable hour slugs was introduced in 1896 to selected Head POs/Sub POs which were not allotted combined date stamp and obliterator (the term officially first coined in Indian Postal Manual 1883) without hour slugs in 1893 and from 1910, this type was allotted to the HPOs/SPOs which were not issued combined ds and obliterators with both hour slugs and inset arcs.

The steel date stamp devices were manufactured at the Postal Workshop, Aligarh and supplied to to Pune Stock Depots.

Transit Sea Post Office Postmark: It is Kirk type 10/Dovey and Bottrill type 9/Renouf type 74c with Sorter Set A.

This type is recorded by Kirk to be used from November 16,1907 to April 5,1914 and it is found with Sets A, B and C.

Transit Skedule: The date in the Sea PO postmark suggests that this card was carried by Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company steamship SS Caledonia from Mumbai on February 27,1909. It reached 'Adan (it is the actual name) on March 3 and Brindisi on March 10.

SS Caledonia was built by Caird and Company Limited, Greenock, Scotland and was in service from 1894 to 1925.

It completed 102 homeward trips from Mumbai from 1894 to 1914 with Sea Post Office in it.

These are ½A Mumbai War Gifts Fund blue/gray cinderella (4.5cm×2.6cm) which were issued in September 1940 as part of set of 3 to collect public money in order to support raising of new squadrons of the Indian Air Force.

Squadrons 122 and 132 were raised in May 1941 and April 1942 respectively, mostly from the fund collected from the sale of these cinderellas.

Here is an example of the usage of this cinderella on a 1940 Mumbai to Al Iskandariyyah commercial cover.

Supply whatever you deem fitting, I am sure it will be appreciated as public record, now and in the future.

Just humour me if some stuff I post is incorrect, I just meddle around the fringes
of Philately, I am a collector, not a Philatelist.

Mongolia 1979
Sc#1077d 1979 1 tugrik

Packet Ship leaving Southampton, Sept. 24, 1842, opening the Indian Mail Service.



The technology of steam was the driving force behind the Industrial Revolution, and it was the introduction of steam propulsion that made possible regular transit of the Red Sea. Early steamers were grossly uneconomical; they were used first, therefore, in situations where passage under sail was most severely handicapped, as on canals, rivers, and lakes. The Red Sea is narrow, with treacherous shoals along its eastern shore, and prevailing winds blow in opposite directions in the northern half and in the south. It was not practical to operate from end-to-end on a regular basis under sail.

Before 1830 passengers bound for the East had no alternative to circumnavigating Africa. In that year the East India Company pioneered the Red Sea route with a small steamer, built in India, called the Hugh Lindsay. From 1835 the mails for India were sent through the Middle East rather than around the Cape, and in 1837, the Company started a steam packet service between Bombay and Suez with the paddlers Berenice and Atalanta. These early steamers were not equal to the task of maintaining their timetables throughout the monsoon, but the average journey time from India to Britain was reduced from six months to two.

The connection across the Middle East was suitable only for passengers and mail. There was an awkward trip by horse-drawn wagon 84 miles across the desert from Suez to Cairo, down the Nile in the Jack O'Lantern, a tiny paddle steamer, and then transit by barge on the Mahmoudieh Canal to the Mediterranean port of Alexandria. In 1840 the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company won a contract to take over the packet service from there to England, hitherto run by the Admiralty. The whole journey was first described as the Steam Route; later, and more generally, it became known as the Overland Route.

Within three more years, P & O opened a regular steamer service from Suez to Calcutta via Ceylon and Madras. The obstacles were considerable: steam coal from South Wales had to be shipped to the Indian Ocean via the Cape, and by the 1850s, P & O alone employed some 170 sailing colliers for the purpose. Coal was stocked at Aden, roughly midway on the 3,000-mile voyage between Suez and Bombay; up to a third of the journey time was taken up in coaling ship.
