|THE FOLLOWING REPRESENT SOME OF THE MORE
COMMON EXAMPLES YOU WILL SEE ON WWI A.E.F.
ENVELOPE COVERS. MORE EXAMPLES WILL BE
ADDED AT A LATER DATE.
Many WWI letters written overseas will simply bear an address, name of the writer, and a
censor stamp upon which an officer's signature is written. Officers censored their own mail,
but not enlisted personnel. This envelope is uncommon only in the respect that it was from
a Marine. Note the "US Marines Mail" written in the upper right corner.
The above are examples of envelopes commonly seen with overseas letters.
|American Red Cross Envelope
This is from a letter sent by an Army Nurse (see "Nurses Mail" on
upper right). Red Cross envelopes are often seen on letters from
Medical personnel or people in hospitals.
