These pages are intended to show a diverse range of different examples of censored and military mail on behalf interested collectors and the two foremost, British-based, postal censorship societies: CCSG, Civil Censorship Study Group and FPHS, Forces Postal History Society.
There are usually four or more example covers per page with some write-up and, if possible, background information. With your help, more covers and information will be added over time.
If you have examples you will share with your fellow collectors and/or additional information about any of the covers shown please e-mail me.
Can you provide scans or photocopies for any category either listed or unlisted? Please do so and a web page will be made up.
Please email any external links related to censorship not listed above.
Credit for contributions will happily be given. Some cover are from fellow collectors, while some dealers have also agreed to allow use of their images. Thanks to all who have contributed material.
While many covers are from my own collection there will be many Irish related items, I will try to keep the diversity very wide.
