Intercepted letter notice, Canadian Postal Censorship, June 28, 1940
Intercepted letter notice, Canadian Postal Censorship, June 28, 1940, re. letter from "il Truciolo" to A.S. Biffi & Co.
Internees were allowed to write and receive letters. However, all camp letters were read by a censor. Contents deemed inappropriate were blacked out with ink. The same applied to incoming mail. Camp letters that were written in Italian were first translated into English before being read by a censor.
