    The previous thread "postal stationery" has become to extensive.Time to start a more limited thread.
    I am going to start with some uncommon,rather rare envelopes:
    Burma JU 1.jpg
    Peacock overprint by the Burmese Independence Army,issued in May 1942.
    At the time Burma was occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army.
    Because the King´s image was embossed,different types of the overprints are
    difficult to recognize.

    Burma JU 3.jpg
    Also issued in May 1942,this envelope is overprinted with a Henzada II - type
    peacock.This type of overprint exists on stationery only.Stamps overprinted
    with this type were produced unauthorized after the war.

    Burma JU 5.jpg
    issued June 1st,1942
    The overprint reads: JAPANESE POSTS & TELES DEPT *MOULMEIN*
    Centre: POSTAGE PAID
    The handstamped R in a triangle was a security measure.
