Prisoners of War Mail. World War I. A German prisoner writes home (via a London post office box) to his parents, the Gottliebs, living in Upper Bavaria in Germany. Written on the white letter form provided by the British, in ink, 1 page, dated July 25, 1918, the son’s letter was sent to Fürstenfeld-Bruck bei München, Schöngeisinger Straße, 15, Ober Bayern, and addressed to Herr Gottlieb Elierl. The prisoner tells his parents, the Gottliebs, he got some of the money they sent him in the amount of 43 Francs. He asks them to send him a gray coat. The form has printed on it “nicht zwischen die zeilen schreiben” (don’t write between the lines). The Red Cross in France was the intermediary. This letter was opened and read by a censor. Careworn, a touching ephemeral reminder of the work done by the Red Cross on behalf of prisoners. German text.
