DANISH CENSORSHIP AFTER WWII
This week's items come from a member's collection of ‘censorship after WWII’.
They come from the period when Denmark was re-establishing itself after the German Occupation. At this time British forces were still in t he country to handle the German troops whose surrender was given to Field Marshall Montgomery by the German High Command at Lüneberg Heath on 4 May 1945, and also to deter Russian ambitions.
These examples of outgoing and incoming mail each carries censor marks and labels applied by the Danish authorities.
