Flown covers (6)  carried on the first contract airmail flights by W.R.Carpenter Airlines. Sir Walter Randolph Carpenter [1877–1954] was an Australian-Canadian pearl hunter, trader, merchant, ship-owner, airline industry leader and philanthropist of American ancestry active in the western Pacific from the 1890s through the 1940s. In 1914 he formed the firm of W. R. Carpenter & Co. Ltd. in Sydney, and began establishing plantations, stores, trading stations, shipping services in the Southwest Pacific. When World War I erupted, his company expanded into New Guinea when the Australian government expropriated German property. The company branched out as major storekeepers, traders, and property owners in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
In New Guinea, Carpenter took advantage of the development of the Morobe gold fields to acquire hotels in Wau and Bulolo, set up electrical power plants and cold storage facilities, and operated a fleet of inter-island steamers. In 1933 he established the first air service between Salamaua and Wau with two De Havilland Fox Moth aircraft, followed in 1934 by a direct shipping line between Australia, the Western Pacific, and European ports. In 1936 he expanded his airline through a government-subsidized route between Rabaul and Australia.
