      As some of you may know the civil war and intervention is a pet topic of mine. Most russian philatelists are aware of the major contingents of the AEF and mail items do come up at auction and in dealers stock reasonably often.
      What is not so well known is that the Allied Expeditionary Forces not only comprised units from the UK, Czech legion, Japan, Canada, and USA but also China, France, Italy, Poland, Rumania, Australia (australians demobbed and re-enlisted in the British army) and Serbia. (Serbian troops also served in the Murmansk area).
      I have one item from a Serbian soldier in my collection and wondered if anyone has seen mail from any of the other minor contingents. (China, Italy, Rumania. Australia and Serbia.

      If so I would be very glad to hear of it and any accompanying information.

      Do you have scans of any of the five Chinese covers you mentioned. I purchased one Chinese expedition force cover on auction a few years ago and I have seen one in the postal museum in Tokyo, Japan.
