I recently came across the Giblert and Ellice Islands stamp in the attached photo with a manuscript cancel. I have looked through both Vernon's and Fitchett's works, but I have not been able to identify the mark. Does anyone have any guidance on what the mark is or where I could look for more information?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

My guess is Arorae

That is a great guess! Thank you.

I have checked both Vernon and Fichett's books, and neither of them describe a manuscript cancel from Arorae like this one. So, this could be a previously unrecorded Arorae manuscript cancel, or it could be a different (possibly a ship cancel?) mark altogether. Any other guesses out there?
