Shop - Special Numbers & Binder
In addition to The Bulletin, The Military Historical Society has published occasional Special Issues since 1968. These generally cover previously unpublished research material
providing an in-depth study on a single subject. The publications are referred to as SPECIAL NUMBERS, some of which are now out of print. Special Numbers are now published
every one to two years and this listing includes all the Special Numbers which have been published to date. Those which are still available for purchase have a price and an
"Add to Basket" button. Those which are out of print, are listed for information only. However, the Society is planning to make these out of print editions available for download in due course.
