    Initials used to make a word when writing snail mail

    I hope that title makes sense

    After a discussion at the weekend. There are some common things wtitten at the bottom of the old snail mail.

    For example
    SWALK - Sealed With A Loving Kiss

    I also know at least two more. The first is a bit cheeky.
    NORWICH
    HOLLAND

    Can you guess/add any others.

    I was disgusted when I thought it was just the town (oops, I mean city). How offensive!

    Gosh, I remember writting HOLLAND on my letters to my sailor boyfriend at sea.

    I'd forgotton what HOLLAND meant.

    Obviously it doesn't work.

    As a clue this one is similar to NORWICH.

    Re: Initials used to make a word when writing snail mail

    I had never heard of this (I must be younger than I thought I was) until I read Terry Pratchett's Going Postal.

    That book mentions and explains SWALK, along with mention but no explanation of LANCRE and KLATCH. The accompanying text suggests KLATCH may mean something a bit risque, but I'm too young and innocent to work it out.

    So what do LANCRE and KLATCH mean? (I don't think you need to have read Discworld books to answer this.)
