1954-56 QE DEFINITIVE, SG 1-15  -  POSTAL HISTORY
F146
1957 (20th September), cover originally bearing QEII 2½d definitive (SG 3a), machine cancelled 'BULAWAYO' addressed to Salisbury. Then printed 'ECONOMY LABEL / O.H.M.S' label pasted over and addressed to Kasempa and struck with violet oval 'NORTHERN RHODESIA GOVERNMENT / LABOUR OFFICE / 20 MAR 1958' cachet. Presumably the six month time lapse had nothing to do with the original enclosure, or otherwise a very slow Government department. Unusual.
