The PHSGB’s First Newsletter appeared in February 1953. The fourth newsletter issued in July 1953 bore the title “The Polar Post”, shortened to “Polar Post” from the fifth newsletter onwards. The name has stuck and the title remains today, over 200 issues later.
Since 1993 Polar Post has been published in A4 booklet format by Quacks the Printers in York, England. A major change occurred at the beginning of 2007 with the introduction of full electronic publishing using Adobe Indesign CS3 software which has enabled all illustrations to be printed in grey tone, greatly improving the appearance and clarity.
Polar Post is distributed to members only at the beginning of March, June, September and December. It is not available for sale to non-members.

A DVD-ROM in PDF format containing all issues of Polar Post from 1953 to date, over 245 issues, is now available to members only. The issues from 1953 to 1996 are only available as picture/facsimile scans in PDF format and thus are not word searchable. Further information is available in the March and June 2015 issues of Polar Post below the “Contents”. The price is £55 including postage and packing but there is a reduction for those who bought a previous disk. Please contact the editor by email to order and for payment details.
