    1944 (31 Oct) Bank of British West Africa Ltd cover registered from Bathurst to Sydney bearing remarkable franking of 1938 10/-, 5/- pair, 4/-, 2/-. 1/- and 2/6d pair, aggregate of 32/- representing the 3/6d combined airmail rate per half ounce x 9 + 3d registration + 3d 'AR' fee (introduced May 15, 1943). Bathurst octagonal censor handstamp (code 'NN/3'), backstamped Registered G.P.O. Gambia, Registered Sydney and Manly. A copy of published article on this cover by Rd Perry accompanies.
