The Military Postal History Society began as a small group of
collectors meeting in May 1937 to form an informal War Cover Club

The War Cover Club Bulletin reappeared in 1946 as an independent

The quarterly issues of the Bulletin became identified by season
beginning with Winter 1994.
This document presents a listing of the articles both long and short, which have appeared in these publications during the period from May 1937 to the end of 2004.
