Montgomery, Alabama, Aviation Branch Cover

[Montgomery, AL Cover]

Montgomery, Alabama, had several military facilities active during the First World War. This cover origininated from a soldier stationed at the General Aviation Supply Depot. The hand cancel shows the name of the "Aviation Branch" of Montgomery, a special Post Office branch set up to service mail from the soldiers. These covers are quite uncommon, since there were very few soldiers stationed at this facility.

The envelope used was provided to the troops by the YMCA. Here is another YMCA cover, mailed from Camp Custer, Michigan.
