Newsletters

Our newsletter has provided a friendly link between the society and its membership for over 70 years. Over this time it has greatly expanded and is now published monthly, in full colour and 8 or 10 A4 pages. Contents include:

  • the latest news and information about the society and its activities
  • updates on new Swiss stamps and Swiss Post
  • detailed articles on all aspects of Swiss stamps and postal history
  • short notes on interesting items, discoveries etc
  • members queries and answers
  • helpful hints on difficult areas.

Members of the society receive the newsletter monthly, either by post or by email (at reduced subscription rate).

The newsletter forms a major part of the Society’s annals and now comprises a major source of information for those wishing to research Swiss philately. The society’s library holds a full set of newsletter publications, dating back to the beginning of 1948. Scanned copies of selected issues can be obtained from the society’s librarian : librarian@swiss-philately.co.uk.
