CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The National Savings Movement was established in 1916 to raise funds for the First World War and encourage people to save. Volunteers were organised into Local Savings Committees which were supported by National Committees and Civil Servants. Savings products provided by the Post Office Savings Bank and building societies etc, such as savings stamps, bonds and certificates, were sold directly to the public and the funds were sent to the Government. Savings groups were formed in shops, factories and clubs and ran throughout the First World War. When war broke out again in 1939 Regional Savings Committees were reorganised under the War Savings Campaign. From 1940 local savings weeks became regular events and by 1969 the Post Office Savings Bank became a separate government department and post offices became the distribution outlet for National Savings.
