3rd Vietnamese Battalion 1952

Sent in June 1952, this cover represents a very early Vietnamese unit, identified as the 3rd Vietnamese Battalion by the red handstamped cachet.

The sender includes his SP number (Secteur Postal = Postal Sector or Zone) as well as his BPM number (Bureaux Postaux Militaires).

BPM 402A was located in Cantho between January 1951 and March 1955.

A Sector Postal was the equivalent of the American A.P.O. address and had five digits.

The 4digit number “4012” on this cover is a actually a Vietnamese KBC zone number, despite the French designation.
