Item description:

See scan – perfect condition. Front picture of postcard shows a high ranking meeting at the Varna port. This is THE scarcest Bulgarian WWI NAVY censor cover / postcard sent from the board of the Royal Navy / Marine SUBMARINE U boat / ship 18 from the town of Varna. The cover has the military cachet applied saying SUBMARINE 18. The boat was bought by the Bulgarian NAVY during that time from Imperial Germany and was actually part of the 8 boats submarine fleet that was situated in the Black Sea during the combat activities of WWI. The boat had just 20 or so people staff and the pieces listed at VicMart are almost all the pieces known to exist. Maybe just a couple more exist among collectors. 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 of EXTREME RARITY.
