GB Cover FIRST WEEK WW1 Delayed Mail KGV Control Aug 1914 Cherkassy Russia K279

£55.00

INTERESTING DELAYED VERY EARLY WW1 CIVILIAN MAIL posted at PLAISTOW East London on 3rd August 1914 and FOUR DAYS in transit to Russia over the period of Declaration of War (4th August 1914). Particularly unusual being franked by a CONTROL C14 single of SG.371. Clear Russian CDS on reverse for 7th August 1914. The normal route for such mail was through Germany. Interesting directional endorsement "Russia via Warsaw". Very Fine for an item of this type & period. Please look at all the scans to help form your own opinion.
