1937 – Netherlands Indies Flight cover

1937 – Soerabaja – Makassar flight

A very pictorial flight cover from the Netherlands Indies was obtained. It’s a First Flight  cover from the K.N.I.L.M. and commemorate the opening of the Soerabaja – Makassar route. It has Salvation Army stamps from the 1936 issue on it, but not full set. Very nice cover. I’ve seen this cover occassionally on Ebay, but never with SA stamps before.

1989 – Norway Polar Post

1989 – Antarktispost Ganovex

Very nice and rare Antartic cover from the German Antartic North Victoria Land Expedition in 1989. The expedtion was called Antartic Ganovex V with the ship  M/V Polar Queen. The cover has the Norwegian Salvation Army centenary stamp on it (“Slum sister” Othilie Tonning) and postmarked “Packet boat”. Signed by the Captain!  Very pictorial slogan postmarks!
