WORLD WAR II PRISONERS OF WAR
Rarely Seen Unused 1944 Letter Sheet
The Geneva Convention rules concerning treatment of prisoners of war allowed Americans to send letters postage-free to Allied prisoners of war held in enemy nations. During World War II, the U.S. War Department printed special letter sheets which were distributed to local post offices and Red Cross chapters for citizens to use. The letters were forwarded to the Red Cross in Geneva, where they would be distributed to the prison camps in enemy nations. This version was printed in late 1944 and in use briefly before the end of the war. It is a great addition to your World War II collection. Sold elsewhere for up to $20! Measures 5¼" x 12½", ships folded.
