Some Hong Kong and Singapore paquebots
Where the name of the country is not included, it can be difficult to locate these paquebot markings. Proud's book gives some examples of local paquebot cancels and then there is Roger Hosking's book for paquebot cancellations of the world. Both of these are not fully comprehensive. The only sure method is to see them on cover preferably with some normal postal cancellations as well. For explanation with regard to paquebots, you can read my various previous posts by using the search bar above.
These ones were from Hong Kong. There are 2 different types here with the one on the 10c stamp of slightly larger size.
