This Society promotes the study of the postal aspects of all wars and military actions of all nations. Our members' interests include soldier campaign covers, patriotics, prisoner-of-war mail, naval mail, occupation and internment covers, picture postcards of a military nature, camp cancels, field post offices, propaganda labels and leaflets, V-mail, censored mail and similar related material.
During 2017 and 2018, we have been able to add a number of new
presentations (full- and mini-sized), articles, and exhibits.
