Africa/JY 24 00" c.d.s. pmks., "Canadian Contingent/British Field Force/South Africa" inscribed at top left, backstamped Newmarket, an extremely fine and handsome cover; Canadian postage was not really valid in South Africa, even under these war conditions; it has been speculated that the Canadian stamp was applied for patriotic reasons by a proud Canadian soldier, or that it may even have even been accepted as payment by a tolerant army post office official who then applied the proper stamps; nevertheless a marvelous usage of the Two Cent Imperial Postage stamp and a wonderful rarity, this being one of only two such covers known posted from South Africa, both posted by the same soldier with the other bearing a "Field P.O./British Army South Africa" postmark (Unitrade #86b).
