322 C image 1903 (JY 14) usage of 5d + 2½d adheisves, both perforated "JS/S" on cover from Sydney to the Jaluit Gesellschaft, Hamburg, with arrival backstamp. Justus Scharff & Co were Island Traders and competitors of Burns Philip in the South Pacific. The company is recorded as operating from Sydney from at least 1892 and it was still trading in 1915. The company grew in the early 20th Century and its increased involvement in coastal and island trading were made easier by the increased presence of German settlers and businesses in Papua, Marshall Islands, Samoa and other areas of the South Pacific. However the company’s activities were not limited to trade with German interests as they traded into French Polynesia, New Caledonia as well as the Solomon Islands and others. 
The company’s German links were to be its undoing, as when WWI broke out, matters of cargo coming from former German Colonies became a problem for importers. This came to a head in May 1915 when the ‘Remonstrant’ arrived in Sydney from the Marshall Islands, with a load of copra consigned to Justus Scharff Ltd. On all reports the vessel had left the Jaluit Atoll, prior to the occupation by Great Britain and therefore was essentially a shipment from Germany, or at least German interests.
