Notice was sent to editors and publishers ordering them to submit to the council their written materials prior to publication when the “information of a military nature was communicated.” Materials such as books and posters were affixed with a stamp or included a line of text indicating the material was “permitted by military censorship” or, RVTs in abbreviated format.
