Australian Unit Postal Station (AUPS) allocated to 8 Base Postal Unit for intended service in Japan after serve in the Northern Territory. There was no reference to the datestamp in Assistant Director Posts memoranda until that of 10 April 1947 when it was noted as being in reserve. Usage started there probably late in 1947. Only dates of that year, and of 1948, are known. The location of this AUPS had not been definitely established although it is thought that it functioned in the Kure area.

Postmark remnants on back otherwise nice clean cover with crisp postmarks. This AUPS was only in service for a short time in Japan. Unusual multiples of BCOF overprints on cover.
