Website Cat.AD (BH Type 22)
Location:Bahrain
Description:The BPA Bahrain Killer Canceller – Abu Dhabi use.
Story Behind the Cancellation:The canceller is occasionally seen used on mail originated in Abu Dhabi but cancelled and sent from Bahrain.

Its use prior to the opening of the first post office in Abu Dhabi is explained by the fact that mail was transported from Abu Dhabi to Bahrain for further dispatch. Such mail is only recognizable if the sender’s address indicates Abu Dhabi origin.

Use of the canceller on mail originated in Abu Dhabi after the opening of the Abu Dhabi post office and the introduction of the Abu Dhabi and Das Island cancellers – AD Type 1 and 2 – is highly unusual especially if the mail is franked with Abu Dhabi stamps.
