HC Deb 05 June 1946 vol 423 c345W
127. Mr. Medland

asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the fact that men still serving in the Naples area who require to send urgent telegrams home have to go to the local Italian postal authorities, and will he consider making available the British A.P.O. to these men for urgent domestic telegrams to this country, leaving greetings and social telegrams to be sent by the Italian service.

Mr. Bellenger

The Army Post Office may still be used by Servicemen in Italy if they prefer. The arrangement by which they may now use Italian post offices as well was made in order to give additional telegraphic facilities to Service personnel. The rates charged are similar.
