Early WW2 Mail to Canada

This is a selection of items to and from personnel stationed at various camps in southern England. Those from the servicemen carried, of course, the unit cachets, which adds considerably to the interest. Of particular interest were examples of mail sent during the (very) short-lived free postage interval from 23rd to the 25th January 1940.

Jim also showed two examples of censored mail (bearing Daynes type A100 censor marks), one from Aldershot on 13th June 1940, and one from France on 8th June (!), postmarked with FPO 95, allocated to FPO C-1, serving HQ 1st Infantry Brigade. This FPO handstamp was destroyed shortly afterwards, prior to evacuation of the troops from Brest.
