1902 censored Bermuda 1d postal card written from the Darrell’s Island P.O.W. camp on 31st January to Basutoland , but only cancelled HAMILTON FE 25 1902. A blue censor strike is on the front of the card that was originally addressed to Mafeteng but then forwarded to Maseru. Mafeteng AP 8 02 and Maseru AP 12 02 cancels are on the back of the card. The sender has written the card in English and refers to letters he has received from family members. A few small outer edge faults to the card but a very rare destination for P.O.W. mail from Bermuda.
