Could you please post the attached, which has a
somewhat unusual postmark, to try and get an explanation as to where it comes
from. Most likely a forgery, but, maybe this is from GB upon arrival
in the country? Clearly on the scan of the back of the stamp the ink showing
through may add weight to it being a forgery.

1. SG1 with an oval of bars and the figure 1 - or is it 11. Whilst in the general form of the GB cancels in use at the time it bears no true resemblance to any of them and can, I think, be ruled out as an arrival mark. In any case, the GB arrival mark in general use at the time was entirely different.
Over the years I have seen quite a number of 'phoney' cancels on SG1 and I think that this is one to add to the list.
