Tri lingual hand stamp

I have just aquired this cover from Camp 23. Does anyone know where the purple trilingual BY AIR MAIL/ PAR AVION / LUFTPOST hand stamp would have been applied. I have not seen this before

Hello John
Without any real knowledge of German POWs in Canada and their mail it would seem a good bet that the trilingual air mail marking would have been applied in Canada, as the postage was paid. The further question, probably the one your may have actually asked is: was it applied at the PoW Camp or at the censorship office in Ottawa?

Thanks for that. I am sorry for the delay in replying but I have been out of the country for the last three weeks. Since I posted the original question I have seen a couple more of these both are from the same camp No. 23 as that in my original post so I am tending to think that they were applied at the camp. I still would like more proof though rather then rely on only three examples. I will keep looking on the "interweb"
