Past Events 2022

19th October 2002

Tim Harrison was our speaker this evening displaying both Estonia and The Union of South Africa. Two countries with a chequered history of wars and peace, Poverty and wealth. Described and illustrated with a skill that reflects his long association with the subjects.

Estonia illustrated mainly with a some rare and unique postal history in the first half and a range of early material in the form of postage stamps including the famous Cape of good hope Triangles.

Wednesday 15th June 2022

The vice president of the Royal philatelic society, Simon Richards. Treated us to a 150 sheet display of early mail from the Caribbean which included from the start a very rare cover from Nevis dated 1663. This was a time of pirates and privateers and such names as Nelson and Napoleon were mentioned in connection with the islands and the history that made Simons display so interesting.

Our last meeting of the season will be on the 20th July and a new programme is being compiled and will be available on the night.

Our speaker next month will be Michael Pitt payne with his showing of some interesting postal history.
