MSG Singapore - Display by Richard Hale at the Singapore Philatelic Museum

on July 20th 2013

Southern Peninsular Malaya 1935-42, Plus

Photographs by James Song & report by Bernard Chung

This excellent afternoon was a re-presentation of Richard Hale's Display, Spink London, April 20th 2013. Please also look at the MSG report [Number 4 of 2013] for additional pictures of the frames at the April meeting.

 

The meeting was held at the Singapore Philatelic Museum on 20th July which started promptly at 2pm with Richard Hale’s display of Southern Peninsular Malaya 1935 to 1942. We had 4 rounds over 3 nos 16-sheet frames, with the final round spilling onto a table top. A few members were unable to attend the display as the same afternoon an expertisation meeting was held elsewhere. I am sure they would have preferred taking in Richard’s display instead of having to work on a Saturday afternoon.

Diana and Paul Barsdell from Australia were holidaying in Singapore. Lee Teong Keong, Tan Chee Hui, Kuo Chee Yoong and new member Johnson Sau made a special trip from Malaysia to join the meeting. A good international gathering at Singapore.
