HISTORY:
 
Warcovers was launched in January 1994, producing paper copy lists with 185 illustrated items for sale. This continued up to list 88. From October 2001 the lists were produced using Adobe Pagemaker.
 
February 2002 we went on line with 'warcovers.com' website and lists were available in PDF format for customers to download. This system was used up to list 185.
 
We now have available 97 lists in PDF format which are an invaluable reference source of approximetly 18,000 items all illustrated.

June 2009 saw the introduction of the 'warcovers co.uk' e-commerce website. New Stock is added to the website every 4 weeks and we offer an e-mail notification reminder service if requested.
 
We joined the FPHS (Forces Postal History Society) in 1991 and have links to the CCSG (Civil Censorship Study Group) and MPHS (Military Postal History Society)
