The Military Postal History Society Bulletin Downloads

This page points to copies of the Bulletin of the Military Postal History Society that are available online for download by members of the Society.

The files referenced from this page are PRIVATE to members only, and should not be redistributed. Each quarter, when a new Bulletin is issued, members who have paid for electronic copies will receive a private email, specifying the username and password required to access the documents for that quarter ONLY.

Please Note: Some of the Bulletin files are Adobe Acrobat format (PDF). PDF files tend to have relatively large file sizes. They may take a long time to download if you have a slow internet connection. Instead of clicking directly on the link to view the Bulletin online, you may wish to right click the link and save the file to your computer, phone, or tablet, for viewing or printing later on. If you do not have the Acrobat Reader program installed, click on the icon below to do so. The reader program is free.

For more information about downloading and viewing PDF files, see the PDF information page.

Current Bulletin

NOTE: The following files are for the 2017 Bulletin #3. The "Lower Quality" (150 dpi) version may be of sufficient quality, and should use less internet time and bandwidth. If you can afford the time and bandwidth, do download the much larger 300 dpi version.

[The Society's "web worker" has been able to re-create some of the Bulletin content in other electronic book formats, check below for more information.]

If the picture quality is found to be unacceptable, then try downloading the "High Quality" file.
