I found these covers in a junk box from Romania to Australia all have strange postal markings.I take it these would have travelled through the Suez Canal?

re: Came across these 1940s covers from Romania to Australia

Interesting covers, Brian.

1949 had to be a tumultuous time in Romania...
Looks like 3 different senders.
Katoomba is west of Sydney.

I tried googling Gianni Nanos, Katoomba, and came up with nothing.
The Hotel Gearin was the oldest licensed pub in Katoomba, but closed its doors about a month ago...

I am always curious about the ventures of the recipient of a group of covers such as these...

Hopefully, you'll encounter an Arabic reader who can decipher the cancellations, but I also see "SINAIA" on the top cover, which seems to be an important clue...

Sinaia is a small town in Romania in the mountains north of Ploesti.
