Feb 1915, a T.P.O. mail from U.K. to Szechwan riding on T.P.O. Peking-Moukden Bureau Ambulant and then to the South via Ichang route.

4 Feb 1915, incoming UPU card of British George V half-penny from Stirling, UK to Mienchuhsien, Sichuan, China, further uprated with a King George V half-penny stamp cancelled by a British STIRLING three-line cancellation. The delivery was made via the Siberian railway route and stamped with " PEKING-MOUKDEN BUREAU AMBULANT No.1 " rectangular circular postmark. After entering Peking, it was sent south to Ichang, Wanhsien, Shunkingfu, Tungchwanfu, and then transferred to Mienchuhsien, where it was cancelled with a waist-frame lunar circular stamp. This is a very rare and exciting piece of incoming mail from the train mobile post office in the use of the Peking-Moukden railway from Moukden to Peking.
