Capt. C.F. Bailey, USN
USS HENDERSON used two types of postmarks on OPERATION
HIGHJUMP covers (figures 1, 2), both of which make no mention
of the ship's name but retain the World War II branch number 16182
in the wording. Some covers can be identified by a typed or handwritten
notation of the ship's name (figure 3). Thus far this writer has not
identified any return adress rubber stamps or cachets used strictly
on this vessel.
