The W.T. Wilson cover were mostly franked with complete sets of stamps in earlier years which was rather common then. Later high values of stamps were used.
I'm not sure about W.T. Wilson to whom the 1938 covers are addressed. But maybe we'll find out with the help of our readers! Roland

Who is the following W.T. Wilson? The address is now Royal House, Sutton Coldfield (near Birmingham).
Maybe somebody can help me.
