I've been asked if anything is known about this overprint - if genuine, how, where, when and why!

Obviously unused, but I note the franking of 6as is correct for an airletter through the Aden civil posts to Imperial destinations 1945-51.

I've been through my copy of Lee and can't see anything like this.

Has anybody seen another? Grateful for any input.

Hi there. Just a wild guess but Pre-stamped and supplied by FPO counter staff? Looks interesting.

Sorry Neil, not seen anything like this before.
