1916 stampless envelope from a Prisoner of War at Tanglin Barracks, Singapore, to the German Consul General, Batavia, but redirected to Weltevreden, Java. A superb strike of the rare PASSED / COMMANDANT P. of W. is on the front of the cover along with a TANGLIN SINGAPORE 15 MY 1916 cancel. Singapore 15 MY, Batavia 19.5. and Weltevreden 19.5.16 transit and arrival cancels are on the back. A very rare cover from this P.O.W. Camp in Singapore.
