Hi all
I have a postcard London to Belgium, 1915. It bears this unusual strike I don’t recognise. Any ideas? Is it a censor mark? Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks
Mark

I've seen them on similar cards -- I think it's a Belgian mark, although I'm not sure what it was used for.

It's an individual identity hand-stamp issued to Belgian postmen - I've come across various combinations of letters and numbers.
