This Day In Norwood History – December 22, 1942- Norwood Trust Company Encourages V-Mail Use

For the convenience of fathers, mothers and other members of local Norwood families who have relatives in the service, the Norwood Trust Company has a limited number of V—Mail service envelopes which provide the most expeditious method of handling letters.

(Life Magazine May 1942)

By using the V.-Mail service, the weight of mail is not only reduced, but this method tends to speed up mail to the personnel of our Armed Forces outside the continental United States. When letters are addressed to points where microfilm equipment is operated, a miniature photograph of the letter will be made and sent by the most expeditious transportation available for reproduction and delivery. The original message will be destroyed after the reproduction has been delivered. Messages addressed to points where micro-film equipment is not operated will be transmitted in their original form by the best means available.

INSTRUCTIONS
The instructions on each envelope are as follows:

  1. Write the entire message plainly on the other side within marginal lines.
  2. PRINT the name and address in the two panels provided. Addresses to members of the Armed Force., should include rank or rating of the addressee, unit to which attached, and APO or Naval addreess.
  3. Fold, seal, and deposit in any post office letter drop or street letter box
  4. Enclosures must not be placed in this envelope and a separate V -Mail letter must be sent if von desire to write more than one sheet
  5. V-Mail tellers may be sent free of postage by members of the Armed Forces. When sent by others postage must be prepaid at domestic rates (3c ordinary mail, 6c if air mail is desired),

These enveloped are made available to the bank through the Recordak service which is a photographic system of accounting which the Norwood Trust Company has used for a number years for the protection of both the bank and its customers and it is through this service that such things as V-Mail has been made possible.

The officers of the bank will be glad to explain the use of this mail if any of its customers have further questions.
