Picture Postcards from the Great War


Picture Postcard Monthly magazine

Where would be the best place to begin a search for WW1 picture postcards? eBay obviously! But the first thing to do would be to obtain a copy of the premier magazine for postcard collectors Picture Postcard Monthly (PPM)

Among the 60+ pages of PPM, you will find names and address of specialist full-time and part-time picture postcard dealers. Most of them will have WW1 cards in their stock. Each monthly issue of the magazine features articles by knowledgeable collectors on various subjects, themes or topographical interest. (Many of PPM's 'back issues' carry interesting and informative articles on picture postcards from WW1.) There is also a calendar in the magazine which gives details of specialist postcards fairs held throughout the coming months in the UK and elsewhere.   

The Great War magazine

Published bi-monthly by Great Northern Publishing, The Great War magazine is produced in A5 format with 70+ pages in each issue. It is available as a printed magazine or as a PDF download. Although not WW1 picture postcard orientated, it contains much original and also unpublished material from and about The Great War. "We tell the stories and accounts of the ordinary men and women at the front and at home," says its editor Mark Marsay. Regular features include a 'Diary of the War' column, a 'Battle Honours' page, book reviews, 'Roll of Honour' page and 'News' and 'Letters' pages.

Blind Veterans UK

This year (2012) St Dunstan's changed its name to Blind Veterans UK.
It did so,  "to help more people understand who we are and what we do, so we can help blind veterans...We know that not enough people are aware of us...We've thought long and hard about what we're all about - and our new identity captures this perfectly."
