WW2 Colditz Prisoner of War Card

An Original WW2, Prisoner of War issued Post Card sent from the 'infamous' Colditz Castle.

Although wartime POW post cards are fairly common to find, cards sent from Colditz Castle POW Camp are very rare.

This one is clearly marked Oflag IVC which is the German designated number for Colditz.
It has a round German Censor rubber stamp on the front and with a date stamp.

This card was mailed in July 1940, by a Major Lambert to his wife living in Belgium.
