Item description:

See scan – perfect condition. This is an extremely scarce Bulgarian censor cover / postcard sent from the board of the Royal Navy / Marine torpedo Boat / ship SHUMNI from the town of Varna. This is the earliest and so far only example of this strike and military cachet of the SHUMNI ship – during the very first days of the war. This postcard was mailed sometimes during the end of October 1915. SHUMNI is probably one of the scarcest Bulgarian postal history cancels from that time, since the ship was sunk during combat actions later on during 1916. Such postal history covers are almost unique due to that small staff the ships had and also due to the limited time the personnel had to write and send letters. So far there are just a handful of this type of military cachets and cancels known to exist. Most of the Bulgarian NAVY had its combat missions in the Black Sea and fighted over with the Russian Imperial fleet, as well as with Romania. True collector gem.
