Military Mail: European Boundary Commission Activity on the Aftermath of World War I. [Author: Alfred F. Kugel]. WWI was long and bitterly fought, resulting in sentiments against the losers being high by the time of the 1918 Armistice. Consequently, the victors were determined to exact a significant price from their enemies in terms of territorial concessions. To that end, a series of Allied Boundary Commissions were formed under the various treaties with the Central Powers to draw up new borders considered appropriate. Primarily British and French military cartographic personnel staffed these Commissions, with Italy being a significant third participant. As a member of the Allies, Japan was invited to send representatives, even though its interest in European affairs was limited. In most cases, the staffs of the commissions were relatively small, and it appears that they didn't post much mail.
