Wreck & Crash Mail Society

Post by aerophil »

http://wreckandcrash.org

Publishers of "La Catastrophe", issued quarterly in March, June, September & December

The Wreck & Crash Mail Society was formed in the latter part of 1994, and is devoted to the collecting and study of all aspects of delayed and/or damaged mail and interrupted mail services.

Currently the Society is composed of four study groups, namely: the Air Crash Study Group, The Railroad Wreck Study Group, the Ship Wreck Study Group, and the Suspended Mail/Conflicts Study Group.

The Society publishes a quarterly journal "La Catastrophe", which contains articles on all aspects of wreck and crash mail, as well as news on new cover discoveries, auction realizations on wreck and crash mail, and questions from members who are seeking information on their crash and wreck covers and the stories behind them.

The Wreck & Crash Mail Society normally holds an annual meeting (so far, all have been held in London), where members display parts of their collection, meet other collectors of wreck and crash mail, and exchange information and material with fellow members.

If you have an interest in this area of postal history, we believe that the Wreck & Crash Mail Society will fulfill your interest. Annual membership dues are UK£15 or US$25.00, which includes a subscription to four issues of "La Catastrophe".

If paying dues by PayPal, please add UK£.50 or US$1.00, and pay to: kaerophil[at]gmail.com

Dear Neill,

The UK£ dues have gone up to £15.00, and the US$ amount of $25.00 is still the same. Go to our website at: http://wreckandcrash.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and click on "La Catastrophe Back Issues" to see which ones are still available. The prices are plus actual postage from the USA or UK, as applicable, as some back issues are held in the USA and some are held in the UK.

Best regards,

Ken Sanford
