Carried by QANTAS/BOAC re-established airmail service via Ceylon & India to London and onwards by Trans-Atlantic airmail service (at the same combined rate as the Pan-Am Trans-Pacific Clipper service that ceased after Pearl Harbor). NB: the post-war Trans-Pacific services direct to the USA were not re-established until late-1946/early-1947, at which time the rate was reduced to 2/6d per ½oz. This is an early example of the post-war civilian 'all-the-way' rate to America of 4/- per ½oz + 3d registration fee. Recorded by Martin Walker dating from January 1946]
