(GB Internal) Stornaway to Glasgow, cover bearing the new 'British European Airways' cachet introduced when BEA took over this service from Scottish Airways on 20/2/47 and which replaced the previous 'Scottish Airways' cachet. No datestamp, but 'Stornoway/BAM 726/Glasgow/Fef 1947' is written in Francis Field's hand on the back and is addressed to Miss M Baldwin (? NC Baldwin), Birmingham. So a likely first day use of new cachet. Covers bearing this cachet are scarce.
