[Above: Sarny Territory. Starting on October 1, 1941 and until December 4, 1941 the civil Ukrainian Postal Service fell under the supervision of German civil authorities. For accurate postage accounting for cash payments a control stamp was pasted on mail. This was a very temporary measure. On December 5, 1941 the German Official Post took over responsibilities and these were no longer valid. They were used in (Kreise) Sarny, Dombrovicsa, Kleseov, Rafalovka and Rokitonov. These are very rare stamps.]
