I have been trying to find out when postal censorship of Mail into Germany ended after WW2. So far without success

Military or civil censorship?
Which side/zone?
Do you have a specific cover to interpret?

One source is Stich, Stich & Specht's "Civil and Military Censorship During World War II"

The whole lot - I assume that the Russians kept censorship going for longer than the other allies and also civilian censorship lasted longer than military. But these are just guesses

From your post it sounds like you have some info ?
