Censorship of mail from abroad

Although censorship of private mail was officially ended on 2.7.1945, shipments from abroad or to abroad were censored still long afterwards.

Letter, sent by air from Osek u Duchcova, Czechoslovakia (3.X.1945) to Domžale (18.X.1945), censored by the military censor in Belgrade.

World Stamp Exhibition in Prague

I spent a nice extended weekend in Prague. Nice weather, city sights and of course World Stamp Exhibition with more than 3000 frames, including my single frame exhibit "The First Croatian WWII Local Issue - Međimurje, 1941" for which I have received 88 points and a Large Vermeil. This is a great success, especially for a specialized exhibit that is not classic material.
