Lahad Datu paquebot
It is not very often one come across a local paquebot cancellation on a North Borneo stamp. Most of my paquebot stamps were either cancelled at Singapore or Hong Kong. This resembles a Lahad Datu paquebot which is distinguished by its long tongue to the letter "Q" and its distorted "T". The only date of use recorded in Proud was February 1950 and should be fairly uncommon.
