Dear Graham,
I recently found this card in an eBay lot . Someone else got the lot . But can you or any other member tell me about this card?

Dear Viswa,

many thanks for sharing this item. I have very similar cards sent by a German missionary who was interned during WW I and repatriated in 1916.

Best regards,

Christian

The TVC 476 indicates that the postcard was censored in London as well. The cancellation looks like Dinapore which was one of many detention camps that did not have a censor at the camp. Bombay censor office would handle all of these. Only a few were also censored at London.
