Whilst the October 1944 6d aerogramme H&G 1 was in use an order to replenish the stock was placed in England and that particular version
H&G 3 was issued on the 25th March 1947.
Prior to the arrival of that new stock, the supply of the locally produced version rapidly decreased and in order to meet the public demand for aerogrammes an emergency printing was called for.
There was a supply of a Great Britain stampless aerogramme with a Control No 51-5829 on the lower part of its side panel
For reasons unknown, the Postal authority decided to modify the foregoing air letter
by imprinting a facsimile of the current
KGVI 6d definitive onto the form
. Around a dozen used copies recorded & rated as one of the World’s rarest Aerogrammes
