POW

PRISONER OF WAR MAIL
Prisoner of War mail is concerned with combatants who have been captured by an enemy power immediately after an armed conflict. They are made POW's to isolate them from their own forces that are still in the field.
A large variety of camps were erected, including those for POW, internees, refugees, "slave" laborers, and displaced persons & includes prisoners that were housed in ships. POW and Internee mail is frequently subject to both military and civil postal censorship because it passes through both postal systems.
Prisoner's correspondence was usually handled by the Red Cross.
