British Military Mission to Russia 1919: Cover from the British Forces in Archangel, Russia endorsed "O.A.S." at top sent stampless to W. Lindsay-Everard with good strike of "ARMY POST OFFICE / P.B.2" datestamp (July 23) in black with further strike below "Opened by Censor / 861" Reseal label at right. Circular "Passed By Censor / ♚ / No. 84R" at left. Scarce: the Post Office was housed in the Academy of Music building in Archangel.rnNote: The recipient of the cover, Sir William Lindsay-Everard, would perhaps have preferred a stamped cover - a fine collector of Airmails sold in 1953, he owned an "Inverted Jenny" (position 19) which was exhibited at BPE in South Kensington in December 1947.
