Jamaica Patriotic Stamp League commercial cover franked by George V 1½d "War Stamp" + Stamp League Red Cross label (½d) - 3rd version, and tied by SP 17 1917 ANNOTTO BAY postmark. The league was founded in 1915 by Lewis Ashenheim to raise funds for the British Red Cross Society, establish a Jamaican airplane fund, and to provide relief for Polish Jews. These labels were sold at all post offices for ½d (halfpenny) each and had no postal validity if used alone by the general public, but if inscribed "Red Cross Business" or "Jamaica Patriotic Stamp League" and endorsed with Mr. Ashenheim's signature they were accepted in place of postage stamps.
