Horizon Publications Limited was founded in 1997 by thirty years served Royal Signals veteran Tony Talbott. Tony served in Northern Ireland, the Falkland Islands and British Forces Germany.

Our original aim was to provide a fund-raising and compensation medium for British Ex-Prisoners of War with Mr Leslie Allan, Secretary of NEXPOWA, the Earl Haig, President of NEXPOWA and Dame Vera Lynn, Patron NEXPOWA. Compensation owed to British Ex-PoWs is a long and complicated issue that we were proud to raise awareness to. As a consequence of producing many annual journals for NEXPOWA we were approached and commissioned to produce commemorative journals by various military associations. For the last five years we have produced journals in support of Help For Heroes (the current edition is available at the H4H online shop). Over the past eighteen years we have been privileged to feature the following editorial contributors and supporters:

• HM Queen Elizabeth II
• HRH Prince Philip
• HRH Princess Anne
• Baroness Thatcher
• Past and present Chiefs of the Defence Staff MoD
• Field Marshal The Lord Vincent
• Field Marshal Baron Guthrie
• Field Marshal Sir Peter Inge
• Field Marshal Sir John Chapple
