Alistair Kinnon showed stamps from Singapore issued on a yearly basis featuring the Chinese New Year. Our members amused themselves by trying to discover which symbol they were born under.

Nick Guy . gave an in-depth display of Imperial Airways material, focusing on routes within Africa

Julie Barnard concluded with postage stamps that she had collected to prove to her husband that stamps were “More than just a little piece of paper” In fact one issue was made from wood. Others included 3D stamps, Illuminous stamps, Stamps with rock particles in the design and even some stamps which included fragments of HMS Victory. There were many others too numerous to mention but a fascinating collection which served to convince Mr Barnard that he was wrong in his assumption.
