Presentations on Military Postal History
Members of the Society have created some
Mini-Presentations of Military Postal History. These
are quick mini-presentations that run entirely
in your web browser, with no additional software
needed. They are short (5-8 slides),
and cover a purposely limited aspect of an area of military
postal history. Try one!
Each of the following longer presentations cover a
particular topic among the many possible subjects of military
postal history. Most of these presentations were
created by members of
the Military Postal History Society, and have
been given at various stamp shows, symposia, and exhibitions.
The Society solicits
additional presentations from its members.

Guidelines for information on how to

These presentations were for the most part
created with PowerPoint (tm), but have been converted
into formats that should be easier to read and
enjoy. In particular, there are PDF files of each
presentation, and a set of web pages
with images of the presentation slides.
The web pages may be viewed online, but
a downloadable package is provided to allow
the reader to enjoy the presentation off-line,
using only their web browser as a viewing
Some more recently-posted presentations are available
for e-readers. We have created files for both Kindle (tm) and EPUB.
