These two images, one from Tokyo dated 1915 its date illegible, and the other a piece from Shanghai dated March 6th 1915 tying two 1 cent brown Hong Kong adhesives, both received the cachet in red "RECEIVED AT LIVERPOOL / DAMAGED BY SEA WATER". The two cahets differ in format from one another but it is likely that the two items are from the same wreck, a ship that was torpedoed on route to Europe.
