Ceylon Airgraph

  • Digital Collection
1986-08-01 An airgraph specially printed for troops based in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) for use at Christmas 1943. Airgraphs like this were typically adorned with topical or relevant objects, in this case Santa arriving on an elephant. Note the two censor marks at the top right and the note pointing to the address box stating the address must not be typed. As the airgraphs were delivered half size, a typed address would have been very hard to read.
