1945 WWII Expeditionary Force Message

WWII Expeditionary Force Message (E.F.M.) telegram receipt used by US forces in France.
The messages were transmitted via the French PT ( Postes, Télégraphes, Téléphones) and the fee was paid with a French stamp, usually a 25F Château de Chenonceaux which was printed specifically for E.F.M.

This document is postmarked US ARMY POSTAL SERVICE APO 516 – 1 MAR 1945.  This APO was located in Rouen, France.  The message was controlled by censor and the receipt received the censor marks, in this case two of them. The E.F.M. was then transmitted to Paris and bears a date stamp CENTRAL-RADIO -  PARIS – 7-3-45.
