Date Used1942-12-19
Cover sent from Germany to WWII Luftwaffe Kriegsgefangen (Kgf) / Air Force Prisoner-of-War (POW), Tax Percue / fee paid (cash) for the airmail costs to Ottawa, Canada camp (POW mail was free, but the airmail service was not). War-worn, as per scans. With German and Canadian censors. Took 3 months to get from Germany to Canada -- in 1942 he was most likely a captured pilot from the Battle of Britain, or perhaps one of the (relative) few Afrika Korps pilots.
