EARLY FORCES MAIL
The contents cover a span of 400 years starting with the 30 years war, touching on the War of the Grand Alliance, the War of the Spanish Succession, the War of the Austrian Succession, the Seven Years War and the Napoleonic period (including the invasion of Ireland and Wales). There is also a section on prisoner of war mail including details on the regulations governing this.
This is based on the illustrated talk given by Barrie Jay, Past President of RPSL on the occasion of the inaugural Stuart Rossiter Memorial Lecture in 1995. The contents have been enlarged by other material from his collection.
The subject is covered in a masterly way, combining
the history of the period, with the history of written communications,
often giving graphic eye witness accounts of historic events supported
by material from Barrie's wonderful collection.
A fascinating introduction to the subject which will appeal both to the serious postal historian and those interested in military and social history.
