POW Note

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone know anything about a 1914 POW note, It is pinkish with WD on front I think it says one smilling or somethig of that nature, the back has 8 circles for stamping that is where the 1914 came from. It's not mine I could try to get a scan from the person who has it, I know that would be best but I don't have access to it. Thanks

From the description it is the note used in English POW camps from WWII, not 1914. The WD stands for War Department. The denomination would be "ONE SHILLING". The number stamped on the back is a validation stamp and should have a date in the 1940s not 1914.
