Russian Postmark

Please can anyone translate the attached postmark? It is from an envelope sent by an Austro-Hungarian officer PoW from the camp at Dauria, Siberia.

Thanks

Mike

The inside ring says "Military censor nr 4" ( военный цензоръ )

the outer ring reads : "the Irkutsk Post office"

( при иркчтской поутовой конторъ )

Dauria is a region near the Baikal Sea in Siberia

"Military^ could be said to be a euphemism. The literal translation is "War censor".
