20288 ,   image1941 (Aug & Dec) Mail forwarded from a civilian P.O. to a military P.O., with two items, one being a large fragment of postcard from Leukas to Rome, correctly franked with Greek stamps tied by dispatch cds, entering the military mails with P.M. n° 37 cds (located in Arta) and tax marking as the franking was not accepted (signed Sorani, illustrated by Sirotti in his handbook on page 80); and cover from Ithaca to Italy franked by Italy 50c, tied by dispatch cds (Astolfi p. 9) and P.M. n°82 cds (then in Patras). A very rare duo, also including a most infrequent usage of a Kingdom of Italy stamp tied by a Greek cancellation.(Image 1) (Image 2)
