This is the first comprehensive study of these cards introduced during World War II to help speed up the mail between prisoners of war and their families in New Zealand.  It covers the years of the war, the mail flow, the genesis and development of the cards and details the various types that were used.


Also included is a chapter on the Japanese prisoner of war cards.  The extensive appendices includes one which traces the mail of a prisoner during these years. A bibliography completes the book.


A most unusual aspect of philately and a nostalgic look at the past, this fascinating book, Monograph 18 in the series, will appeal to New Zealand collectors and those also interested in airmail or wartime philately.  This A4 size book is available soft bound with flaps, runs to 146 pages with colour illustrations throughout and is a limited edition.
