I thought this was interesting enough to buy for a pittance. He said he would return and by the time this was postmarked the US had invaded Morotai and Palau in the Pacific located just below the Philipines only 2 weeks beforehand and the lauching of the actual invasion to retake the Philipines from the occupying Japanese forces was only 3 weeks in the future.

I thought this one was quite strange and a little poignant. The cover has done the rounds trying to find the adressee and finally been returned to sender. To this day it remains unopened and its contents a mystery - and will remain so despite my curiosity.

What happened?

Why has it remained sealed for over 76 years?

How has it survived?

Below are 2 covers that have turned up in circuit books during 2021. Personally, covers are not my thing but the futility of war is and an area of history I find fascinating. So for the token amounts these cost they have gone into my "memorial" dispay honouring the fallen that have allowed for the way of life we enjoy today.
