ALFRED F.B. CARPENTER
Handwritten letter, informing an American that a copy of the Admiral's book has been mailed to him. Concerned that he was sent more than the cost of postage, he refunds the difference.
Autograph Letter signed: "A.F.B. Carpenter", 1p, 5x6½. Gloucestershire, 1935 January 31. Addressed in his hand to Ashley T. Cole, New York, USA, in full: "Your book, duly inscribed & autographed, has been forwarded to you today by parcel post, bearing the labels that you sent for the purpose. I hope that it will reach you safely. In case you wanted the information I inquired re. parcel postage to USA. It is as follows - up to 3 lbs - 2/0., 3 to 7 pounds, 3/9, 7 to 11 pounds, 5/9. Thus, I owe you sixpence - herewith; in fact, something more than a token payment from Great Britain this time. Yours very truly ". Carpenter saw action during the Boxer Rebellion (1896-1900). He served under Admiral Jellicoe during WWI, after which he served as a Navigation Officer on board the Emperor of India. In 1921, his book The Blocking Of Zeebrugge was published giving his own account of 'Operation ZB' and the way the blocking operation was carried out. Fine condition.
