Rozalimas (Rozalino, Rozalin) is a small town ca. 40 km north-west of Panevėžys. In World War One, during the second battle for Šiauliai, it was passed through by German infantry of 78. Reserve-Division on July 22, 1915.
During the German army’s withdrawal from Russia at the end of 1918, units of the Red Army appeared in Rozalimas area about mid-January 1919 but were pushed out in late March by Abteilung Randow (Generalkommando 52) in the Grenzschutz drive for Riga. In the second half of 1919 armed conflicts were taking place between Lithuanian para-militaries and foraging troops of the Russo-German Westarmee or Zapadnaja Armija until the area was cleared by Lithuanian regulars in late November 1919.
In czarist times there had been a post office at Rozalimas (named Rozalino) but none during the German occupation. A mandate, as įgaliotinis, to establish a Lithuanian post office was issued to Antanas Žitkevičius, an ex-czarist postal employee, effective from July 26, 1919.
For stamps, Rozalimas was supplied with Fourth Berlin Issue, followed by Sėjėjas Issue and had at least some values of the Independence Issue etc.
Rozalimas had no regular postmarker, so at first cancelling was done in manuscript by showing place and date.
By late 1919 or early 1920 Rozalimas was provided with a standard registration cachet (spelling Razalimas) which then was also used to cancel stamps.
A regular calendar-type postmarker (also inscribed RAZALIMAS) was provided a little later.
In subsequent postmarkers the place-name was changed to ROZALIMAS.
