FGS Passau M1096 - Minesweeper

Thanks to friend, Mr. Wolfgang Beyer, Germany for sending me this envelope with beautiful postmark of FGS Passau (M1096), a KULMBACH class (type 333) minesweeper commissioned in December 18, 1990. The postmark design shows FGS (Federal German Ship) Passau passing Kiel canal.

Minesweeper: A minesweeper is a small naval warship designed to counter the threat posed by naval mines. Minesweepers generally detect then neutralize mines in advance of other naval operations.
