Commemorative FDC on the 50th Anniversary of Radio RSA

REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA in December 1974 issued a first day cover stamp marking the 50th anniversary of broadcasting in RSA. The postmark features the bokmakierie (Telophorus zeylonus), a songbird that is endemic to southern Africa, mainly in South Africa and Namibia. It was once part of the Radio RSA shortwave interval signal. The headquarters of Radio RSA was represented in the cachet. 
Due to Covid-19 pandemic this FDC took a year to reach Malaysia from South Africa.
