In order to understand how to identified the Military Postal cover with KBC number,read the information from IMNAHA below:
Figure 4. Cover from Marine to an Air Force trainee in Tan Son Nhut.
This cover was sent 14 September 1974 by a member of the 7th Marine Battalion at KBC 3340, abbreviated “TD7 TQLC,” to an NCO Trainee at the Air Force General Headquarters served by KBC 3011 in Tan Son Nhut.
The cover was charged postage due – note the upside-down “T” hand stamp, because it was sent through the civilian postal service without any postage affixed. Mail sent between military units could be sent postage free, but only if the military postal service was used.
The following is a short list of terms and abbreviations sometimes found on VNAF covers or in enclosed letters that may help with identification.
|Glossary of Vietnamese Air Force Terms & Abbreviations
Figure 5. Cover from VNAF 3rd Air Division at KBC 3004 to Air Force Training Center in Nha Trang – KBC 4721.
The cover in Figure 5 was sent through the military postal service in October 1973 between two VNAF personnel. Notice that postage due wasn’t assessed on this cover even though no stamp was affixed. The words at top center that are partially obscured by the postmark read “Quan Thu” meaning “military correspondence.” The blue KBC cachet on this cover is much less common than the red or black colors typically seen.
By June 1974, the VNAF had become the fourth largest Air Force in the world, with more than 2,000 aircraft and approximately 63,000 personnel comprising six air divisions and fifteen tactical wings.
Tactical wings consisted of several squadrons (Phi Doi or “PD”) that were numbered as follows: Observation Squadrons (100 sequence numbers), Helicopter Squadrons (200), Special Missions Squadrons (300), Transport Squadrons (400), Fighter Squadrons (500), Reconnaissance Squadrons (700), Attack Squadrons (800), and Training Squadrons (900). The 600 sequence was reserved for amphibious squadrons, but was never used for this purpose1.
Figure 6. After 1963, the last digit in a Tactical Wing number indicates military region.
The last digit of a tactical wing number corresponds to the corps / military region of operation. For example, the 41st Tactical Wing operated in I Corps. Figure 6 shows a cover sent to the Weapons Group (Doan Vu Khai or “DVK”) of the 74th Tactical Wing (Khong Doan 74) based at Can Tho in IV Corps. A 3-dong stamp pays the proper rate for mail sent to military personnel during this period (June 1969).
The following table shows the KBC numbers associated with the air bases where the six air divisions were based. These numbers were obtained from military covers and ID cards, as no official list of KBC numbers and locations is known to exist.
Different KBC numbers served some Air Force units from time to time. For example the 6th Air Division underwent training at KBC 6169 – the location of which is not currently known. Please keep in mind that while a cover with one of the following KBC numbers might indicate a VNAF unit, other units may have used these numbers so additional information is needed for conclusive identification.
|VNAF Divisions and KBC Numbers
(a) March,26th .1973
President Nguyen van Thieu holding agrarian reform law were issued due to the third annyversary of that law, the 10d rare in mint and uncommon in used, very rare in block of ten.
( I found this rare stamps on postally cover, send from KBC 6984 to Saigon 3 , Quan Buu military postal date stamped 9.6.1974 without KBC stamped, please look at that postal history discussion at the date chronology –auth)
(a)The war unpopularity in the US grew strong, and following the Peace talks, the US agreed to withdraw its forces in April 1973.
US Secretary General Henry Kissinger and Vietnam envoy Le Duc To agreed to Chaese fire, and in this Year they had win the peace,s Nobel prized .
(Although the war still until two years more in 1975, in the year the same US President Barrrack Obama win the peace’s noble prize, the criteria was who first had an idea for peace near same with the Vietnam ceasefire 1973, please comment-auth)
- Richard Nixon mounted huge bombing raids on North Vietnam until the North Vietnamese were forced to sign.
- Nixon told Thieu he had to make peace whether he agreed with it or not, so Thieu was forced to sign too.
- January 1973: the Paris Peace Agreement was signed, and the Americans left Vietnam
Nguyen Cong Han told the story:” the 1973 Paris Agreement gave all of us tremendous hope. We weren’t sfraid at that point that the NLF would take over.But President Thieu had openly said he was against the agreement and it was clear to everybody that he had only signed it because the United States had forced him to. So we felt that what we had to do was protect the agreement and try to make sure it was carriede out.All the opposition factions in saigon shared this feeling that they had to join in a formal “Third Force”-that is people who wewren’t part of the government and weren’t part on the Front vut who would have a role in the council of National Reconcilliation.Force bracches,arresting journalists frinedly toward us and bribing assemblymen to allow him to run for a third term.
