The Anglo-Boer War Philatelic Society in Great Britain leads the study of the Postal History and Usages of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War 1899-1902. Much material exists which has not yet been fully researched.
They holds regular meetings in London and Leamington, produce a quarterly journal (The Anglo-Boer War Philatelist) and have published a number of handbooks on various aspects of the philately of the War. The extensive Society library is available to members.
Many members also collect memorabilia of the War, which were very popular at the time; including silver, china, prisoners' artefacts, books, postcards, ephemera etc.
Information about the society and access to other material may be obtained from their web site: www.boerwarsociety.org.uk
