Won this cover on eBay a few days ago. I like the Steamship envelope,but also the pillar box postmark and the stamps are ok too. :)

Very nice. Was this in fact carried on ship? Maybe somebody just used ship stationery? If a ship cover.........Be interesting to get the history - e,g, was this posted on board? Paquebot? Are there markings on the back?

A beautiful very clean cover but I expect the top of the envelop is not in great shape though.

Today I received another ship related cover. Apparently this ship made many voyages during WWII also with captain Krafft.

Very clean, very nice cover, posted only 4 months after the King's death.

Presumably the previous comment was directed at the original cover posted, given that George V died on 20th January 1936, with a bit of help from his physician.
