Description: ALICE SPRINGS: 1944 cover front from Sicily to "Camp Alice Springs/NT Australia" with Allied Military Postage 'ITALY' Overprints 25c & 1L pairs tied by 'GIARDINI/MESSINA' cds, censored at Melbourne, faults but an extraordinary item. [We had no knowledge of any camp in the Northern Territory. The Australian Archives website makes no mention of any such facility. However, we did find the briefest of on-line references to an internment camp at the Alice Springs Jail. This item is the only postal evidence mentioned by Sybrand Bakker at page 173]
