Title: 1939 Cover (Envelope) Sent From Egypt to Bestall Road, Cleethorpes
Author: Unknown
Date: From an August 2017 scan of the original 1939 item

This envelope has a superb and scarce RAF Censor #12 stamp (struck in green).

Bestall Road is off Clee Road, Cleethorpes. Please let me know if you can add some history to this item. Who was Mrs Forester? Who might have sent her a letter from Egypt?

My good friend and genealogist, Wendy Parkinson, tells me that Henry FORESTER (born 1886) and his wife Beatrice Annie (born 1886) were living at 3 Bestall Road in 1939. They had a son called Victor A FORESTER. Was he the sender of the letter from Egypt?
