This the final Isom cover, the last in the wartime correspondence between a DA Davis, a single man farming in Tanganyika and a Miss Isom. On the flap there is a note 'Your air letter received. Hope you can sail as soon as you are ready". A rare non philatelic first flight combined with a piece of wartime social history.
