Description: Airmail from British Forces in Palestine, plain cover franked 1 1/2d, fine strike 'FPO/553- postmark, ms 'On Active Service/Via Airmail' addressed to Royal Air Force El ADEM (in Libya, 15 miles S of Tobruk), but sent to Middle East Forces Aden in error, bs 9/12. It was then redirected to El Aden. Although the arrival ds reads 'RAF/23 DE 47/Aden, the 14 day redirection time. and the address being 'El Adem', strongly suggests this cover finally reached its intended destination. Likely flown on the BOAC Cairo-Aden service. A nice item with many interesting features and great routing.
