The sixth and final volume in this monumental series covers the history of the mails to and from prisoners in Japan, Korea, Manchuria and Borneo. It is subtitled “Hellships to Slavery” as few prisoners were captured in these countries but POWs were transported there from Hong Kong, Singapore, the DEI, the Philippines, as well as other points of capture. More than a hundred camps existed in Japan divided into groups and the book includes examples of the mail to and from the various groups of camps – Fukuoka, Hakodate, Osaka, Tokyo and Zentsuji. In Korea the principal camps were in Keijo and Jinsen and mail of these camps is profusely illustrated. Senior officers and other POWs were also held in a number of camps in Manchuria, the largest being at Hoten, Mukden. Mail to and from these POWs is covered in this volume. The POWs in Borneo, British, Australian and Indian were held in a number of camps but mail is only known from and to Kuching and Sandakan. Examples are illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 500 illustrations, mostly in colour.

The fifth volume in this magnificent series covers the story of the mails to and from American servicemen captured in the Philippines and British and Australian servicemen and senior officers of many nationalities transported to Taiwan. It also covers the postal history of the more than 4,000 civilians held in the Philippines. Mostly American, they included over 1,000 British and many other nationalities. Many examples of mail are shown with various censors and directional markings to and from the camps. As with other centres where POWs were taken prisoner, many were transferred overseas and the book documents these transfers. Uniquely philatelic activity continued in the civilian camps in the Philippines and a chapter is devoted to this subject. There is also a chapter on the postal history of the Guerrillas in the Philippines. In Taiwan the principal camps were in Kinkaseki, Taichu, Heito, Shirakawa, Taihoku and Karenko and mail to and from these camps is described and illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 400 illustrations, mostly in colour.

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.

Publisher: International Society for Japanese Philately, USA, 2003.
ISJP Monograph 14, paperback, illustrated, 62 pages, in Very Good condition.
This monograph chronicles the fascinating, but relatively unknown story of exchanges of Prisoners of War and civilian detainees between Japan and the Allies during World War II. These exchanges were negotiated through neutral countries, and were undertaken by chartered ships at neutral ports such as Lourenço Marques, Portuguese Mozambique, and Marmagao, Portuguese India. Through painstaking research, the author, has uncovered revealing information about the largely unrecorded details of accompanying mail included in the exchanges. He illustrates several examples as well as copies of associated mail such as letters written on board ship and mailed at ports visited after the exchange, letters mailed from the neutral exchange ports, and airmail addressed to passengers sent to ports that their ships were scheduled to visit. Illustrated in black & white.
