Description

1944, US, Kriegsgefangenenhilfe CVJM (YMCA)

NOTES


These cards, printed in black, were provided to German prisoners of war being held in the US. The face appears to have been designed from the then-current WD PMG Form 6-1, with Sender/Absender added and without the form information on the face and the GPO printing code on the back. The card stock, like that used for the government-printed forms, was infused with copper sulfate designed to show any secret writing.
