Hello,

I wanted to share with those of you who collect military mail some news from the Military Postal History Society. Our Society is having a special auction (#200) in June / July in order to raise money to publish upcoming Military Postal History books such as the PT Boat Book, the new edition of the APO Catalog from 1965 to present, the updated WWI catalog as well as one on the Korean War. The proceed from this auction will be used mainly to help with the publishing cost of those publications.
Sale 200 has 380 lots including Military and Naval covers from the Civil War to Iraqi Freedom. It includes many covers from WWI, WWII, the Korean War, US Ships in China, Classic naval covers, USMC, Seabees, UN Peacekeeping etc.
The sale closes on July 20th and is available on our website:http://www.militaryphs.org/

The Military Postal History Society was founded in 1937 as the War Cover Club, American Philatelic Society Unit #19. It promotes the study of the postal aspects of all wars and military actions of all nations. Today members' interests include soldier campaign covers, patriotics, prisoner-of-war mail, naval mail, occupation and internment covers, picture postcards of a military nature, camp cancels, field post offices, propaganda labels and leaflets, V-mail, censored mail and similar related material.

I hope that this information will be useful and I'm looking forward to hear from you.

Terry

Very interesting Terry. I do collect Military postal items but only the scarcer ones I find that aren't seen everyday. Here is a little Parcel piece that I find very interesting due to the History of the location.

This was posted from Peking China from the American Legation Marine base which was made famous by the movie 55 days in Peking about the Boxer rebellion.

Here is a great read on the China Marines.

Nice piece. I always liked US covers from China. Here's one from Shanghai:

Of course neither one of those are really rare.
Now in the sale mentioned in this posting, the USCG Censor is quite a difficult one to find. Even with checking a few thousand censored covers, you'll be quite lucky to find one of the Coast Guard censor marking.
