Our first display was a special display covering 53 pages from our Journal Editor Chris Grimshaw who showed various facets of Parcel Post mail in WW1.  This display was to highlight a study which he currently undertaking - that is military parcel post rates during WW1 and after.  This topic is very much under researched and items are scarce.  In the long term Chris is hoping to publish something on these rates and labels. 

He showed a variety of items, some in his own collection, also from other collections or auction or online material.  By their very nature items of such mail are torn pieces from parcels showing the parcel label and the addressee or else cut-outs of parcel labels or parcel datestamps - there being a variety of labels and rates.  He showed mail from the Western Front, Italy, Egypt, Salonika, Russia, the occupation of Germany and other places.
