Spain, Civil War, International Brigades censor mark on regular army post card, december 1938

 

Starting Bid: 163 USD

 

Reference: 7957

 

Description: Spain, Civil War, International Brigades censor mark Heller Brig. 5b (on the back) in blue ink on an Ejercito Popular de la República field post card, 145 Brigada Mixta. This card was censored by the International Brigades censors instead of the regular army ones. The text is dated on December 25, 1938. Despite the International Brigades were demobilized and many of its members returned home in September 1938, some voluntary decided to stay in Republican territory until the end of the war, many of them in Catalona, where they moved in April 1938, before the nationalist reached the Mediterranean coast in Vinaròs, spliting in two parts the Republican territory. In Catalonia those international volunteers who decided to stay in Spain tried to protect the withdrawal of military and civilian to France. The text on the card gaves “Catalonia” as it sole location, as the soldiers could not mention the places where they were deployed with ongoing military operations. Then, this card was censored by the remainings of the International Brigades. The postmark belongs to the 145 Brigada Mixta: "CORREOS / 145 BRIGADA / ESTAFETA DE CAMPAÑA". On the front, censor number “19”in violet. Addressed to Francesca Sabé, in Mollet del Vallès, by her husband Jaume Vallcorba, from 44 Division, 145 Brigada Mixta, 3rd Battallion, Base Turia 3, CCR.

 

This is one of the very few known examples of International Brigades censor marks on correspondence not belonguing to their forces, and one of the last postal objects circulated through their mail system. Heller does not mention any example.
