I bought a postcard on E-Bay lately that was advertised as being a "black out postcard". I bought the card because it was an area I knew very well showing an old building I ate at a few times years ago. So I am very happy with the card, but what in heck is a "black out postcard"? I have a couple friends who collect postcards who also have no idea and "Google" doesn't help either. I will include a link below to the card, just highlight and check it out. Any ideas?At Wits End

Look at the CdS cancel. Location has been removed from cancelling device. This was something done during wartime.

Thanks Mike - I really had no idea and my friends who collect post cards, who should have known, have now been informed! Thanks! Happy

that Giles, what doesn't he know?

US APO and FPO covers have similar omissions, often accompanied by the sender's complete corner card address.
