Hi All

 

I think by now all of you know my passion for Postal History especially that of the Boer War. I want to share a good item of such history with you. This particular item if a Ceylon postcard sent from Ragama Camp to Stellenbosch. One overprinted six cent Ceylon stamp and a pair of 5 cent stamps cancelled by a single circle Ragama Camp postmark dated 5 Feb 1902, both postmarks are clear. Large Ragama Camp oval 'passed by censor' cahet and a light rectangular 'censor' cachet. Signature on censor cachet and 'Registered written on left side. Stellenbosch postmark indicating receipt, 8 Mar 1902. All of these marks, symbols, etc make up a well balanced item of postal history, a couple of stains here and there do nothing to the value considering the age and circumstances.
