This canceller was used by the 4th Army Command which at that time was in Beersheba and Gaza. The writer was one of the soldiers from the German forces sent there to assist the Turkish forces in attempting to capture Suez in 1916. They comprised mainly artillery and heavy machine gun companies and included the Flying Corps Unit 300. They were placed under the command of Kress von Kressenstein, along with the 3rd Turkish Infantry Division, and formed the 1st Expeditionskorps. After the Battle of Rafa in January 1917, which cleared the German and Turkish forces from Sanai, the British Forces advanced to Gaza and defeated the Germans and Turks at the First Battle of Gaza in March 1917 and the 2nd Battle of Gaza on 17 to 19 April 1917. This card must have been written in the “stand off” period between April and October when the two forces faced each other along the Gaza to Beersheba line.

The ‘Ville D’Alger’ was run aground off Joliette, where she lay half full of water.The mail was all recovered a few days later, but all was wetted by sea water. The steamer was subsequently refloated on the 6th April. There are four different types of handstamp known used, three have the wording ‘NAUFRAGE DE LA VILLE D’ALGER’ in two lines, the fourth omits the ‘LA’ from the wording. There is also a manuscript cachet ‘Naufrage de la Ville D’Alger’. This picture post card fro Algeria, has had the stamp washed off. The cachet received is a variety on the usual ones seen, with the 'NAUFRAGE' in smaller letters than the 'DE LA VILLE D'ALGER'. It has been struck in a deep blue ink. Fine and uncommon
