Welcome to FaceBook visitors (and anyone else who may have connected here)!

Our FaceBook group is located at this FaceBook Site for MPHS.

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.

As an example of the wealth of informative articles that appear in our Bulletin quarterly, take a look at the index below, which lists the many articles published by MPHS in 2021.

Please consider joining our Society! We are running a "special" digital-only membership dues amount of $10 for the first year. You will receive access to e-book versions of our Bulletin, as well as all of the educational and research material we offer online. See: our membership page for more information about joining.
