[Jewish?] soldier's mail: stampless cover ex FPO 243 (7th Armoured Division - Egypt) to civilian in EKRON, 25 FE 41, backstamped RECHOVOT 2 MR 41 where re-routed to Rishon Le Zion and dispatched next day, arriving RLZ on 4 MR 41; initially censored by RAF (scarce hexigonal cachet), then opened and resealed by base censor, and finally by Cairo-applied "Deputy Chief Field Censor"; handwritten notation "On Active Service". The cv may originate with one of the several Palestinian-Jewish units based at that time in Egypt, prior to the Greek campaign. The FPO 243 pmk date exceeds Proud's latest date of 5/01/41 by almost two months.
