India 1943 Freedom Struggle Pow Prisoner Of War Censors On Letter For Sale
Inter-prison mail from Security Prisoner Bina Das in Presidency Jail, Calcutta to a Security Prisoner in Barisal Jail with censor marks of both prisons with a portion of the text cut out by the censor. This is Prisoner of War mail relating to the Indian War of Independence / Independence Struggle. The prisoners detained for 'attempted Independence' were lodged in separate sections in regular prisons & were euphemistically identified as 'Security Prisoners'. Their mail was (sometimes?) censored. Bina Das was detained for her active participation in the Quit India movement. She had also been previously been detained & sentenced for the attempted assassination of a Governor. Censored mail of independence activist prisoners is exceedingly rare. Partial transcipt/translation:

** PAPER CUT OUT BY CENSOR** I think, though now onwards we shall be kept distributed
in various jails, we have the advantage of communicating mutually
