MAIL FROM A P.O.W. IN JAPAN. A Japanese Prisoner of War card to Norwich from Sgt. Len Melton, a prisoner at the Hakodate Camp on the northern island of Hokkaido. Written on 1 January 1945 he hopes his wife and family had a good Christmas and New Year. The card has been censored by the Japanese at the lower left and at the top a red cachet ‘Service Des Prisonniers De Guerre’ was applied. A scarce card.
