Polar Postal History Society of Great Britain
The Polar Postal History Society of Great Britain (PPHSGB) was founded in 1952 by our current President Harry Evans. Over the years the Society has added to the initial area of collecting of the Heroic Age / Classic Polar Exploration (which includes Scottäó»s and Shackletonäó»s expeditions) to incorporate not only more modern postal history but also postcards, new issues, Cinderella and thematic collecting. The Society now boasts a membership of about 300 worldwide, and recent auction realisations confirm Polar Philately retains a strong following.
