This cover  posted in Simla on 17th August was also involved in the loss of the SCIPIO described with the last image. The envelope addressed to Grindlays Bank in London received a single line “Damaged By Sea Water” cachet in red.  Numerous other cachets or labels and explanatory notes were used by the various post offices handling the salvaged postal items.
