As cover itself tied by Australian Army RAILHEAD P. 144, as such this cover was not marked "OAS" and simply transfered into the civilian post office at SARAFAND (the largest military base in the Middle East at that time), where the franks were tied by 4 strikes of the local civilian postmark (Dorf-7). Of further note, Stobbs records the RAILHEAD cancel was in use at GAZA RIDGE from 1 March to 16 April 1940 by the 211 AGH (Australian General Hospital), and later used as a TPO cancel until March 1941 - Proud does not record any usage for this cancel at this time.
