Members of the Military Postal History Society have created a number of presentations. Unlike a typical philatelic show exhibit, a presentation is intended to be given to an audience with narration, most often using the PowerPoint product.

Full-Scale Presentations

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. See the Submittal Guidelines for information on how to submit your articles and material for posting on this website.

These presentations were for the most part created with PowerPoint ™, 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 tool.

Some more recently-posted presentations are available for e-readers. Where possible, we have created files for both Kindle ™ and EPUB.

See the PDF information page for additional help with this file format. See the ZIP information page for additional help with this format. See the EPUB information page for additional help with this format. See the Kindle ™ information page for additional help with these formats.

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!
