Sent to Vienna, where it was inspected by the international letter inspection military service “g”, authorized to examine correspondence mainly to and from the Balkan States; stamped with ‘OKW geprüft’ 7-line machine stamp.
The postmark applied at final destination in Greece (Kastoria, Western Macedonia) was apparently applied on postcard’s detached reply half.
