This stamp had red cross repeated across background, nurse and flag but no country. Value is 4d. Post mark is Johannesburg but not sure if it is a south Africa stamp. Does anyone know?

Can only be one of these countries

Australia until 1966
New Zealand until 1967
Ireland - decimalised at the same time as the UK (1971)
South Africa until 1961
Malta until 1972
Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) until 1970
Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) until 1963
Nyasaland (now Malawi) until 1963

Is the Johannesburg postmark perhaps a hint? Ah. I see you mention that in the original post. Not a hint then! Never mind.

Thank you sorry for quality of image. I'm not very techie, will try again. I see this was moved to a Cinderella thread. I thought Cinderella stamps had no postage value on them so hadn't realised this before. Apologies for my ignorance, very new to this hobby and still lots to learn.
