From Sergio Lugo, Editor, MPHS
I am writing to solicit articles for an upcoming issue of the Military Postal History Society Bulletin to be released in April 2017. That Anniversary edition bulletin will commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. declaration of war in WWI and American involvement in the war. The articles we publish always have to have a tie in to postal history.
The website of the MPHS is at www.militaryphs.org. The website contains limited sections of MPHS Bulletins. The Bulletins treat subjects for all wars, not just WWI. Recent editions have included articles on tankless raining in WWI; the year 1916 and its import for the U.S. in WW I; special British mailing cards of WWI; the correspondence of a British captain KIA at Kut, Mesopotamia; clandestine British censorship of U.S. mail, and others.
The citation for issue # 2, 2017 lists the numerous articles we have lined up (either completed or pending) for that edition. Attendees to the annual WW1HA seminar in October are welcome to submit articles for that issue – provided, of course, that it focuses on the U.S. and use supporting postal history.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
