But you will not find this kind of special cachet or cancellation on First Aerial flight in Britain.!! It's just simple cancellation where as in 1911 they issued special cancellation even though they were flown after Allahabad flight.!!
Above images tells us that it was just 2 wings and some poles in the airplane without any aerodynamic curves or any sitting arrangement.
But there are FORGED cover available on eBay.!! so BEWARE what you are getting into.!!
Let me make sure that I am not an expert on this topic and don't know what happen 101 years ago or even 1-2-5-10 or more with this FORGED cachet/cancellation!!
Are this Allahabad and Sitapur CDS is also FORGED?
I don't see any difference in all of the above cachet so not sure whether it was done with same 101 years old rubber stamp or it was made recently.!!!

Following cancellation were not issued by Germany postal service (also missing posthorn, a standard for German post) and also no approval was taken from Indian Government or Indian Embassy in Germany. So this is FAKE cancellation. (Fantasy cancellation).
Read my previous blog post about this FAKE Germany Cancellation
1) FAKE Germany 2009 Cancellation
2) It's back again with special cancellation for 1st anniversary of Winnenden School shooting.!!
I hope this will help future collectors whether they really want to start collecting GANDHI stamps and philately.!!
