This is the cover posted from Wardha,Having the box type cancellation reads as “Chalta Dak Ghar”(Mobile Post Office) with Jai Hind inscribed in Hindi prominently in between the wavy lines.This is a very Unique and Scarce  Cancellation.I have a gut feeling that many postal historian would have seldom seen this.
