RETURNED PRISONERS OF WAR STIL—We, the undersigned, representing the Catholic

Keywords: Prisoner Of War

Church of this country and the Returned British Prisoners of War Association, hope you may find space for this appeal. After years spent in prisoner of war camps, often under conditions of acute mental and physical torture, our ex-prisoners of war are confronted with particular difficulties in fitting themselves into the post-war world.

Some help is obviously already afforded these men, both by Government Departments and voluntary organisations, but there is stilt a great need of very definite assistance to a large number.

We specially appeal to the younger generation, Scouts, Guides and Youth Clubs, who played such a magnificent part during the war.

The Returned British Prisoners of War Association has already helped thousands of exprisoners of war to obtain employment and to compete with

many difficulties, It has provided a headquarters at 34 Eaton Place, S.W.I, where exprisoners can meet, seek advice and obtain temporary accommodation. These facilities are taken the fullest advantage of and we hope to be able to increase them by opening a residential hostel, but these activities have seriously depleted our funds, which are obtained entirely by voluntary subscriptions.

Cheques, made payable to the Returned British Prisoners of War Association (registered under the War Charities Act, 1940) should be sent to the Organising Secretary at the undermentioned address, from whom further information may be obtained, Where depleted incomes make it impossible to send financial assistance, help can still be given to the Association by sending saleable gifts to their Gift Shop, or by making purchases at this shop.

BERNARD CARDINAL GRIFFIN, Archbishop of Westminster.


TARBAT, Chairman.


Chairman: Press and Propaganda Committee, Returned British Prisoners of War Association.

34, Eaton Place, S.W.1.
