    I would like to ask the question "Can anyone tell me what the letters O,V,S,P,or I -at the top of column 5 of the 1939 register signify?"
    Can I add this question to the existing threads on the 1939 register?

    Most people are recorded as a member of a household. Some people are recorded as a member of an institution. In this case, they are classified with one of 5 letters:

    • O – Officer
    • V – Visitor
    • S – Servant
    • P – Patient
    • I – Inmate
    • Thanks! Thanks! x 2
