India Used Abroad Aden 1880 (2 Nov.) envelope to Guernsey, marked "Via Brindisi", bearing ½a. and 4a. cancelled by "B" in bars and Aden circular date stamp and showing arrival datestamp (17.11) on reverse.

The historic port of Aden was the former capital of the People’s Republic of South Yemen. The Aden Settlement used postage stamps of British India from 1854 until Aden became a Crown colony in 1937. Aden was one of the main junctions of shipping lines. Letters posted directly aboard vessels were cancelled in Aden to correct the omission of the cancellation at their points of origin.

A nice piece of postal history with a neat franking. Particularly rare with the unusual postal destination of Guernsey, Channel Islands.
