Who moved the Danish Red Cross?


In April 1916, a letter was prepared by/for Stanislav Strashevich for transmittal to the Danish Red Cross. It was most likely POW related. Registered and properly franked, the letter was censored by one of Moscow's finest, Yu. S. and sent on its way.

Unfortunately, the preparer of the letter thought the Danish Red Cross was in Sweden and the Moscow postal clerks did not notice it either. Must have been a temporary relocation? When the letter arrived in Sweden, some astute person decided the letter really should be redirected to Denmark. The letter arrived/left Sweden on 22 April and arrived in Denmark on 25 April.

This is guaranteed to cure your insomnia!
