During World War I, Czech territory had not become a front region. The operation of regular Austrian and Hungarian (and maybe German ?) field post offices could be only temporal (during the first days of activation before their leave for the front or during transport from one front to another) and has not been documented so far. The only field post markings relating to Czech territory are therefore those of special offices, such as travelling field post offices, field post sorting offices, etc.

Postcard sent (most probably) by a post officer working at the Field post sorting office in Prague. The franking is tied by the bilingual circular date stamp of the Prague sorting office.
