[underlined] BRITISH POSTAL CENSORSHIP
PRISONER OF WAR MAIL [/underlined]

The Chief Postal Censor regrets that this letter must be returned to you to be re-written, omitting the passage which refers to an enemy broadcast.

The Enemy is always trying to obtain a hearing in this country for his propaganda. You are asked not to help him by indicating, through a letter to a Prisoner of War, the places where his broadcasts have been heard or the impression made by the information given in his broadcasts.

No mention of this letter having been returned must be made in any letter to Prisoners of War or Internees, nor may this slip be enclosed in a letter leaving the United Kingdom.
