As an old time collector and writer on the subject of Prisoners of War
in Italy, Italian Area and Colonies I would be glad to hear from
anyone who has covers or items to swap, exchange or offer for direct
sale. My interest is not solely in POWs in Italy but most of all about
Italians who became POWs and were sent to camps outside of Italy,
especially those in USA, Africa, Australia and India. Please feel free
to contact me at any time.
