    Losnr. : 541 Transvaal

    Recess by Bradbury Wilkinson, perf. 14, 14½ 1878/80: 4 d. sage-green (lower marginal example) and 6 d. olive-black, used on 1881 cover originally mailed as an Officer's Letter to Ireland with manuscript endorsement "No Stamps Available" at top, the adhesives applied at Standerton by the messenger who carried the letter, and tied by STANDERTON / TRANSVAAL cds (June 27) in black. Reverse with Durban transit cds (July 2) and 'H&K Packet' cds (Aug 4). Cover #130 in the Jorgensen census. A superb and most unusual cover.rnNote: The cover is with full contents and written between 17 and 25 June 1881 by Captain Charles Frederick Cobbe Beresford of the Royal Engineers en route from Potchefstroom to Newcastle. Begun at Loop Spruit on the 17th he states "We are (on) the first stage of our march back from Potchefstroom, bag and baggage. The whole thing is the most ignominious farce... The fort and trenches the English held outside the town were very interesting, they made a capital defence and one of the most active was the lady wife of one of the Officers - they were surrounded on all sides by Boer trenches and under fire night and day and reduced to one bag of mealies when they gave in to the villain Cronje who never told them peace was (already) made...". He goes on to report of hunting buck and the appalling treatment of the bullocks used to pull the wagons.rnrnProvenance: Collection Dr. Alan Drysdall, Spink, London, 1 March 2006, lot 1309 (contrary to Spink's description, not ex the David Crocker collection).

    Losnr. : 542 Transvaal

    Recess by Bradbury Wilkinson, perf. 14, 14½ 1878/80: 6 d. olive-black, single example used on 1879 Soldier's Letter to Ironbridge, Shropshire, endorsed "From No. 19/200 Corporal J.J. Bailey, H.M. 80th Regiment" (Staffordshire Volunteers) and countersigned by Commanding Officer at lower left; the adhesive tied by "11" numeral in black applied in Utrecht (as attributed by Dr. Drysdall). Reverse with Durban transit cds (Nov 14) and Ironbridge arrival (Dec 28). The cover (from a correspondence of 8 letters, most of which were franked by Natal adhesives from Zululand, ex Robson collection) with a few small opening tears but very scarce: it is unclear why Corporal Bailey chose a 6d. adhesive when a 1d. would have sufficed. rnNote: The 80th fought at the British defeats at both Isandhlwana and Itombi River.
