(Venezuela) Venezuela to Italy, a rare uncensored early LATI  WWII airmail cover, Caracas to Milan, bs 17/1/40 x 2, franked 3B 7 1/2c, canc Caracas 30/12/39 cds, ms "Por Avion New York transatlantico Lisboa-Roma". In spite of the typed directions we believe this cover was carried to Rome by LATI, and not by Pan Am or Air France, because (1) there is no British Caribbean censorship, (2) the Pan Am rate was only c1B 30c - the rates charged by Air France and LATI were much higher, and (3) the destination is Italy.  Airmail from Venezuela to be flown to Europe by Air France, was first carried by Pan Am from Caracas to Rio de Janero via Port of Spain, where it would have received British censorship. Also there is no Paris or Marseilles arrival ds which is usual on Air France South Atlantic mail. Boyle reports that Venezuelan airmail was sent to Europe by LATI, but that the service was seldom used (p679), and Beith notes that, although censorship was introduced after Italy entered the war on 10th June 1940, Italian censorship
