Virk, D.S. and Hume, John; Lang, Derek & Sattin, Gerald - The China Expeditionary Force 1900-1923
Publisher: Philatelic Congress of India, 1992.
Hardback, dustwrapper, 271 pages + plates, dustwrapper rubbed at corners, slight spine-lean, in Good condition.
An excellent handbook covering the postal history, postage stamps and stationery of the C.E.F. - the British contribution (consisting almost entirely of Indian troops) to the international force sent to China following the Boxer Rebellion. Well illustrated, including several pages of colour plates. "The C.E.F. episode is a landmark in the postal history of the Indian Campaigns. The postal commitment lasted for almost a quarter of a century. Special Indian postage stamps and stationery were used with separate issues for the reigns of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V. The C.E.F. post offices in China offered almost all the important postal facilities available in India with the addition of some new money order services. The C.E.F. mail was carried by all the steamer mail lines between Europe, India and China and later even by the Trans-Siberian Railway. During 23 years of operations, an array of postmarks was generated, unequalled in any earlier overseas assignment. The C.E.F. records such interesting developments in the growth of the Field Post, that it has fascinated students of Postal History, Traditional Philately and Post Office historians in general."

Shelley, Ronald G. - The British Legion in Spain
during the First Carlist War 1832-1839

Publisher: Spanish Philatelic Society, Brighton, 1975.
Large format paperback, illustrated, 72 pages, tiny mark to front cover, short tear along spine, in Good condition.
No. 87 of 300 copies printed. A scarce book on the little-known, ill-fated involvement of a legion of British volunteers in the First Carlist War. The disastrous history of the campaign - disease, desertion, starvation, and mutiny - is largely told through the letters home of one soldier, Charles William Thompson. The Thompson Correspondence is reproduced for its historical interest rather than that of Postal History - letters of the British Legion are difficult to recognise, having the normal markings of the period, but the postal markings on this correspondence are illustrated.
