World War II - Burma & India

Envelope containing photographs sent via Cockburns Agency (Srinagar) Kashmir, 30th March 1945 to Col. H. J. Drew-Smythe at 62 I.G.H.

As well as mail, all photography being forwarded to family or friends in other countries or being sent to other forces personnel had to pass through the hands of the Unit Censor. Some would receive a stamp such as this one to indicate that potentially classified information was deemed to be no security risk if it should fall into the wrong hands.
