Via Panama covers are scarce. [The addressee, Dr Horatio St John Clarke, died at his home "Yarraville" in 'Victoria Street' Richmond on 29.6.1895. The Richmond Historical Society states that Simpson's Road was named after the early settler James Simpson & known locally by that name but was "officially named Victoria Street". That is probably inaccurate because there was a Simpsons Road post office between c. -.12.1876 & 11.6.1892 so we expect the name was officially changed only after the closure. The Victoria Street post office, opened 3.12.1906, may have been on the same site]

image 1942 (Feb 19) airmail cover from Durham to "Royal Air Force/Head quarters/JAVA" redirected (where?) to the RAF Liaison Officer in Melbourne with very fine 'RAAF/BASE PO No1/8OC42/MELBOURNE/AUST' arrival b/s, forwarded again to "Repatriation Sanitorium/McLeod Mont Park" (a polite euphemism for the Mont Park mental asylum) with Melbourne machine of 14OCT/1942, minor spotting at the base. An outstanding WWII and 'Horseshoe' Route cover. Singapore fell to the Japanese on 15.2.1942. Forces personnel who weren't already in the Dutch Indies were withdrawn there and absorbed into the very short-lived American British Dutch & Australian Command (ABDA). The Japanese invaded Java 10.1.1942 and all resistance ceased 12.3.1942. The $64,000 question is: "How did this letter get to Australia?" According to Ted Proud, the final eastwards flying boat service beyond India, per 'Coorong', got as far as the Andaman Islands, arriving at Port Blair 20.2.1942, and returning to Calcutta the next day. After that, services terminated at Calcutta. Of course, the letter was en route by sea to Durban to connect with the 'Horseshoe' Route to Egypt and India. It couldn't have reached India until after Java was on the point of collapse. It's extraordinary that it wasn't simply struck with a 'SERVICE SUSPENDED' marking and returned to the sender. This could have happened at Durban in late February, or Cairo, or Calcutta well into March. But it didn't and somehow made its way to Australia. The least dangerous option would have been to transfer the mail to an Australia-bound ship at Durban. It would have arrived at Fremantle after a couple of weeks: why was it still in the postal system seven months later? The Allies faced a huge logistical challenge to evacuate civilians and Forces personnel from Java. The situation was chaotic and dangerous. Such niceties as shipping manifests and passenger rolls were dispensed with. Nobody knew where anybody else was; who had perished; who had survived; or where the survivors might have ended-up. The fact that LAC Leo Garbutt was tracked-down to a mental asylum could indicate that he was so traumatised by events that he couldn't even remember his own name. This could well explain the lengthy delay in delivering his mail. Other suggestions are invited and welcome.
