HC Deb 06 June 1944 vol 400 c1190
24. Mr. Dobbie

asked the Secretary of State for War whether free postage facilities can be given to troops serving in Burma owing to the difficulties many are experiencing in obtaining the necessary stamps to enable them to write home.

Sir J. Grigg

Ordinary mail from troops at stations abroad, including Burma, is sent post free. I am aware of the difficulties experienced by certain troops in Burma in stamping air letters and air-graphs, and special arrangements have been made whereby this is done at the base.
