Censored Barbados cover from World War II

A recent addition to the collection is this little cover which was looking for a good home;
Barbados Censored Cover
The interesting part for me was in both the fact that it has clearly been opened and re sealed by the censor and that is has an unusual rate attached, totalling 3/1 (three shillings one penny). The cancel is 25th September 1944 from the Circulation Branch in Barbados and I really liked that there were a vertical strip of five 6d stamps. Sent from Barbados to Bournemouth the correspondence is long gone but the cover remains and is quite a nice addition to the collection.
