SA 6.2 – Jamaica – RARE FDC

SA 6.2 – Soldiers & Flag (UK cover)

Salvation Army World Centenary commemorated on Jamaica stamps. This cover seems to be a country combo, with Jamaica stamps on a UK cachet (Soldiers & Flag – UK cover, SA 5.2). Postmarked in Kingston with set of two SA stamps (SG 242 – 243). Issued in very limited quantity – likely a private initiative from a salvationist sending to friends in the UK. The Jamaica stamps were issued only two weeks after the UK centenary issue, and there must have been very little time to organize this issue.
