For a change a few UK-interest cards have featured over recent months. While none could be said to be cheap, prices raised were not exceptional for rarely seen cards.  Members will remember the “Kano camel “ card featured in issue 50. Earlier from Kano is this card showing the crew of the first Imperial Airways airmail flight on the spur route from the main South African trunk route. The pilot of the DH.86 was the famous O.P Jones, shown here on the left in pith helmet and shorts on his only venture away from the European routes pre 1939.
