With 2014 being the 100th Anniversary of the commencement of the First World War, it is fitting that this book is published in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Knockaloe Post Office. It was the only such post office within the First and Second World Wars that was a fully functioning post office operated by the British Post Office and as such it illustrated the upheaval to tens of thousands of civilian 'aliens' caught up in the conflict and interned in the Isle of Man.
The publisher of the book, The Isle of Man Postal History Society, hopes that this book will be of interest to not only the philatelic historian but to all people with an interest in Manx historyduring what was such a turbulent time in the affairs of the world.
