It took another week to reach Brunei on 7 JAN 31. The postmark for Brunei is quite interesting. It looks like Proud D7 but with year missing the first 2 digits. Not only that, the year 31 is placed more to the right.
It was marked as "Undelivered Unknown" in red. They must have tried their very best as the letter went back to Singapore on 9 Mar 1931 as seen by the faint registration cancellation after 2 months. One can speculate whether this Mr Edgar Writhlington ever existed for it would not have been difficult to trace him in a small place like Brunei.
Finally, the letter was returned to Basel arriving on 4 April 1931.
I have decided that, in future, I should be showing interesting items from the other parts of British Borneo.
