I got a letter with a censorship mark I have never seen before. Unfortunately it is not completely readable.
Size: 64 x 37 mm.
Inscription: 26. Field post office --:-- Opened military censorship - MFS (?) 1917 - Military censor No. 1.
The violett cancelation of the army unit is faint and cannot help. On front side there is only the field post mark.
Can someone help to complete inscription?

It looks like 4 chisla 10 mes 1917, in other words Oct. 4 1917.

That seems correct. Thank you very much.
Does anyone know something about the army unit?

The FPO # 26 belonged to the XXIVth Army Corps. In 1917, it fought in Romania as a part of the Russian 9th and then 4th Army.
