Yes I should have remarked on that. RELIEF/118. There may be something in the ACCC or similar identifying where the postmarker was used?

This is a nice usage with the 4c Christmas stamp - although it was a huge issue, you rarely see them on postcard!

From a much earlier period, three 1d red KGV stamps used on this postcard sent from Adelaide, South Australia to France, posted on 21 MAR 1917.

I think they are just Die 1, but nice to have in a triple.
