Starting in 1950, the year that the Channel Islands Specialists′ Society was formed by Bill Newport and John Simpson, the Society regularly published a Bulletin. It ran for 40 years and 197 editions were compiled and produced until 1990 when it was succeeded by today′s Journal Les Iles Normandes.

An index to the Bulletins, originally compiled in two parts by the late John Simpson, shows the bulletin numbers in which items were published about the subjects listed. This index is to help collectors and those who are studying the Channel Islands to take advantage of this resource. To view the index as a PDF click here: Bulletin Index.

Copies of the Bulletins can be requested from our Archivist, Mark Bailey, by email at
