Censorship cancelations are not always clearly assign to a place. This is also the case with this envelope. The letter was canceled in NOWGOROD on 25.11.1915. Speeckaert did not mention any censorship there.
The censorship cancel Вокрыто Военной Цензурой * В.Ц. No. 147 does not contain any location. The high number of the censor may indicate a larger censorship place. It may be helpful to know where the letter has gone. Unfortunately I have problems with handwriting. There is no receiving cancelation. When I looked through the handbook, I could not find this cancel. What about the two-liner? I only can read "Адресат"(?).
Have anyone an idea and can help?
