1918 cover to Guildford, carried on board the 'Southern Sea' which arrived at the island on 13 November 1918.
Cancelled with a very fine strike of type I cachet in violet, franked at 1d rate by a horizontal pair of Great Britain 1912-24 ½d green, tied on arrival by two strikes of 'F.S. 62 / LONDON' circular date stamps dated '27 JA 19'.
Exceptional quality for a Type I cover, and rare thus.
An ex Stanley Gibbons stock item.
