The website advises that the Military Historical Society was founded in 1948 for the advancement of the education of the public by the promotion of the study of the history of the uniformed services of the Crown, of uniforms, weapons, and all aspects of military history, and the dissemination of knowledge relating to such matters. Members include collectors of militaria ranging from badges through medals to postcards, and regimental, military and family historians.

The Society published a quarterly, fully illustrated journal, The Bulletin, which contained a wide range of military research, articles and provides book reviews and a forum for members' questions. The Society also produces Special Publications. Further details of these can be found on the website.
