This cover probably from Cairo to Italy was recovered from the SCIPIO crash and sorted in France for distribution to other countries in Europe. The cachet was printed onto sheets, several to a page and then cut into strips and stuck on and reads: “Lettre endommagée de l’eau de la mer à la suit du désastre aérien.”  It appears that a stamp was washed off.
