Pictures & Notes by Nick Hackney

This was a remarkable Members Display, running into 5 rounds, with a wonderful series of covers, stamps, postcards, anecdotes and historical insights into Malaya through its postal history. Whilst we have quite a few pictures, this is not a complete record of the many gems displayed. Apologies for the omissions.
