Prisoner of War - WWII

| Postalcensorship Home | FPHS |

At the Forces Postal History Society 2008 annual conference Peter Borrows provided a display of POW postal stationery cards. Cards are from the Middle East (ME Form 65); initially Peter only saw Italian POW cards and it was only after publication of his book did he find German cards existed (ME Form 62). He also showed a selection of South African POW 10 cards. The United States also produced cards after they joined in the war - they produced cards for both POWs and internees. There were various form designations used - WD-PMG Form 7-1, 19-8, 19-9, 19-10, 19-11 and Forms 6, 6-1, 7 and 7-1.
