A 1908 cover I have was mailed short paid from Syracuse, NY to London where it was refused and returned to sender. One of the markings is a handstamp that reads 'Postage Not Paid / W.D.O.'

This could either be an American or a British marking. Anyone know what the 'W.D.O.' stands for?

What address? WDO could represent the Western District Office in London. If so, the address should be in that district.
