    It's an interesting cover that shows some age, but it doesn't have hardly anything in common with the standard 1st and 2nd pattern army covers.

    Many thanks for your always interminable and informative knowledge

    Thanks Taka, not a problem, my comment was intended to be a little tongue in cheek. I would still like to know more about the stamp if at all possible. My problem is more in regards to finding out what it was made for. I have resigned to the possibility that this may never be known In any case, many thanks for your help! Cheers.
    Few words ,but correct
    Sometimes I write few words ,depending what im doing at that given time. I helps sometimes people not to buy item ,for later to give the explanation.

    Often people dont like to hear the truth.
