Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Three postcard images from c.1943-44 showing US sailors' life on shore.  These were meant to be sent home to show the sailor's family a bit of what he was experiencing in North Africa.
Besides the captions--sometimes mis-spelled--the cards say "this picture only has been approved by base censor ABS, APO 759"  ABS refers to Atlantic Base Section which was headquartered in Casablance Morocco in 1943 and '44.  The 'APO 759' was the mailing address used for any units within the HQ, like the censors.
