Postage stamps of war (1854-1914) by Douglas B. Armstrong (1888 - 1969) and others.


A very brief introduction to postal stamps used and issued during times of war. The principal focus might be said to be placed upon the Great War which just erupted in Europe and across much of the globe. ( KevinS)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Pastor, yes to both questions. You'll really find this short read to be interesting.

I collect early Irish, WWII German, Brazilian during the dictatorship, remembrance Judaica, lost states, and more.

Very interesting, Kevin.

There is a slight hesitation at the beginning for the book title, that you may or may not want to correct.
You need the end of book announcement for the outro if this is the final section of the book.

My collection is all in boxes, started in my childoood, but with my moves around the world, not worked on in years. I'm hoping to do something with it, maybe next year when we get some more space. Early specialization in Austrian, then in Japan and Korea, and topical collections in health and medicine and my love of waterfalls and tigers.

I'll make the fixes right away.

I've stayed away from the Orient because of my ignorance of the languages, though I have a small collection of Vietnamese stamps. My father did two tours in Viet Nam (65-66 and 68-69.)

Section 1 is PL OK.
Good job on shomono-no-seki.
I'll tell you a funny story about that, and my ferry ride from Mopko, Korea to that little town with the strange name....

I may or may not get to Section 2 tonight.
