Canada Covers

British Columbia MPO Military Post Office / NPO Navy Post Office / FPO Field Post Office WWII cancels. A neatly mounted collection PLUS loose material consisting of 21 covers and 56 cancels on stamp / piece (many blocks or multiples). Lots of nice strikes in here, including large CDS cancels for the Prince Rupert, Prince George and Terrace MPO. Of particular note, is a cancel on piece of the seldom seen FPO 1126 (Williams Lake, Field Post Office).The mounted material is on "Walter Purkis" quadrille pages (interesting to an extent in themselves, as Purkis was a prolific creator of WWII Patriotic covers, but we never knew he made philatelic supplies!).
