Product Description

During World War II, the British Forces issued sixpence vouchers as a form of currency for soldiers to use in canteens and other military establishments. The vouchers were used to purchase goods and services, such as food, cigarettes, and toiletries.

The sixpence voucher was a small, rectangular piece of paper with a printed value of sixpence on it. They were often printed in multiple colors and designs, depending on the issuing authority. The vouchers were used to supplement the regular pay of soldiers, and were often a welcome form of additional income.

The sixpence voucher system was introduced as a way of ensuring that soldiers had access to basic goods and services during the war, even if they were not near a regular bank or had limited access to traditional currency. The vouchers were also used to help control inflation and to ensure that goods were not sold on the black market.
