AEPS StampEssex Festival of Stamps 2010, 7 June 2010

June 7th 2010

Report & pictures by Len Stanway


Len Stanway was able to organise at short notice a table for the MSG at this event. He had a frame with 8 sheets showing aspects of Straits Settlements KGV stamps, postal stationery, postal history and revenues. The table had the Malaysia flag as a frontage and he had a few samples of TMP, publications and Mac's publicity sheet.



As luck had it, the Lady Deputy Mayor of Colchester, who opened the event, was Malaysian (from Penang) and a stamp collector, so the table attracted a lot of interest. It remains to be seen whether this will result in a new member!








The Malaya Study Group website was originally created by the late John Morgan, to whom we are indebted for his pioneering dedication to the Group.
