1944 ŠIBENIK, Letter to Zagreb

Due to military activities in the hinterland of Dalmatia the communications were unreliable and postal traffic remained poor and intermittent. Most of the mail traveled by the German military vehicles or trains via Split and Mostar or via Knin and Bihać. 

1944 Šibenik, local provisional issue, registered letter, franked with Mi. No. 5 in block of four (14 kn) and charged with 2 kn war tax, sent from Šibenik (2.VIII.44) to Zagreb (17.VIII.44) and traveled via Split (9.VIII.44). Letter reached the destination only after fifteen days.
