HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c606W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider issuing to men of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve at present in the Orkneys, distinctive envelopes to ensure censorship of the contents in a manner different from that of ordinary correspondence?

Mr. Alexander

All personnel serving, in His Majesty's ships afloat are already entitled to one privilege envelope a week, which is exempted from censorship on board. As soon as administrative arrangements can be made this concession will be extended to men in shore establishments, such as the Orkneys, where unit censorship is in force.
