Postcard canceled I.R. Spezizione Postale Canea, from Austrian marine landed to protect the Turkish garrisons on Crete and keep the general peace. With interesting hand-drawn descriptions on the back, locating the encampment at the north of the island 'directly in front of the landing ship'. also with humorous drawings/descriptions of the occupation, describing the Cretan [olive] oil of the highest quality and in infinite supply.

Feldpost/Inselpost Rhodos Lokalaufdruck Michel 8A: The perforated, Inselpost, overprinted Luftfeldpost permit stamp, one of the rarities of German Feldpost collecting. Only 50 issued. The Petry BPP photo cert states that this is "from a member of the 6th Battry of Arillery Regiment 999 (island detachment) on Rhodes" and "Except for a light corner crease which is not unusual this has fresh color and normal perforations and in light of its historical usage and significance is in good condition; the cover itself is in good condition. Inselpost covers with the local overprint from Rhodes on perforated airmail Feldpost stamps are rare!". I think that says it all. Also comes with older Wallner BPP and Pickenpack BPP certificates -- due to its rarity it has been certified several times. At the time of this writing not a single other example is being offered at auction.
