Airmail 1929 – Postage Due in Portuguese India

1929 Portuguese India. First flight cover from Great Britain to Karachi (Hackney March 27th, 1929) by Imperial Airways, under franked, taxed on arrival in Karachi with 2 annas. Several attempts were made to find the addressee, either in Karachi, Dar-Es-Salam and in Margão (Portuguese India), where a joint tax of 2T and 12 reis was applied and paid for. As Mr. Cota was absent, the cover was franked with 8 Tangas and sent again to Dar-Es-Salam, where it was finally delivered on August 10th. An extraordinary cover, probably the first sent by air mail with transit in Portuguese India.
