(Boer War) 1901 (19 Feb) cover from Barberton to Green Point Camp, franked with Transvaal 1900 1d. rose-red and green overprinted ‘V.R.I.’, addressed to the elusive “Mr A Gunning/ Tent No.14 (Transvaales)/ Greenpoint, Cape Town”, censored on departure with large double-lined violet oval ‘Burgher Camp/ Barberton’ with “censored” and initials at centre, sent via Pretoria (24.2.) to Green Point Camp (1.3.) where it was censored on arrival, redirected north to Ladysmith camp where it was again censored and rectangular ‘PASSED/ S.O.P NATAL/ CENSOR/ P. of W.’ and triangular ‘PASSED/CENSOR P. OF W.’ Applied, from there sent to Diyatalawa Camp CEYLON where three separate censors have applied their violet oval handstamp. One censor en route has improvised some tape handstamping it ‘On H Majesty’s Service’ (folded out for display). An extraordinary redirected cover, showing eight censor marks on face, having travelled through FOUR camps. Remarkable and probably unique.
