The 1st Czechoslovak Armored Brigade from Great Britain arrived in liberated
Czechoslovakia on 18.5.1945. The Czechoslovak Field Post Office was located in Nemcice u
Klatov and served especially for postal contact with the Czechoslovak civil post (mail
from/to abroad went through U.S. army post offices: incoming mail through APO 655 and
outgoing mail through APO 305). Since 1.6.1945 mail was no longer censored (the censor
mark was placed on covers without censorīs signature). Since 20.7.1945, units could
establish contact with the nearest civil post office. On 12.10.1945 the Czechoslovak Field
Post Office moved to Plzen and on 19.1.1946 to Moravska Trebova where it was closed on
