Arago: Conflict Mail

Conflict Mail

Political disputes within and between nations create new burdens for existing postal systems and sometimes necessitate the hasty formation of whole new administrations. The Conflict Mail from these periods of war or strife carry the signs of the turbulence (partisan propaganda, censorship labels, military sector cancels, prison cancels and sub-standard paper), the diversionary routes it took, and the inventiveness of the transportation employed to send messages past the enemy.
