Item description:

See scan – very good condition. This is a very scarce Bulgarian cover / postcard mailed from the Bulgarian Air / Aviation Pilot Depot Workhouse Detachment / Unit during WWI. As all collectors from the aerophilately know, items from this period are extremely scarce due to the fact that it is the era of the pioneer flight and pilot officers were an extremely low number of enthusiasts. Bulgaria and Bulgarian Royal aviation has a strong history and is actually the first country in the world that used a bomb from the air during the Balkan Wars of 1912 – 1913. During WWI Bulgaria was an Imperial German ally and there were also lots of German officers involved as well as lots of German airplanes and other aviation equipment. Mostly Bulgaria used its WWI aviation for defense of the Capital of Sofia, but also in the Macedonia occupation front, the occupation of Romania and Greece, as well as protecting the Black Sea coast. This was done together with the 2 Balloon units attached to 2nd and 3rd Bulgarian Army. The postal history philatelic item listed is a card from the Aviation Depot situated in Sofia at the Bozhurishte Airfield. At that time the Aviation Depot was attached to the Staff of the Bulgarian Army. There is a military cachet applied of the Aviation Depot on each piece. All such pieces were personally censored and authorized by some of the most famous Bulgarian pilots / aces thus you are also getting the TRUE autograph. THE REAL militaria stuff… Some brief history of the Aviation Depot: 02.06.1916 - Sofia. A new wartime staff of the Bulgarian Aviation has been formed to the Staff of the Field Forces, including: 1st Airplane Detachment, 2nd Airplane Detachment, 1st Balloon Detachment, 2nd Balloon Detachment, Airship Detachment, Subsidiary Technical Park, Gas Producing Detachment and Airplane Depot. Extremely scarce aerophilately item. True gem for any collection.
