Old China Town KL The Malaya Study Group Selangor SG 87

The Malaya Study Group exists for collectors of the stamps, postal stationery and postal history of the states of Peninsular Malaysia which until 1963 formed the Federation of Malaya, including the Straits Settlements of Malacca, Penang and Singapore, the Federated Malay States, Negri Sembilan and Sungei Ujong, Pahang, Perak and Selangor and the Unfederated States, Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Perlis and Trengganu. Many MSG members also collect & study all of modern Malaysia, Singapore, and the island of Borneo, comprising additionally  Sabah, Sarawak, Borneo, Labuan, and the states of Brunei & the peninsular state of Singapore. Study of the whole area so often adds to understanding and appreciation of the philately of Malaya. The Society has a JOURNAL, "The Malayan Philatelist" and a NEWSLETTER supplied free to members, EXCHANGE PACKETS, AUCTIONS and has produced a number of significant PUBLICATIONS on the stamps and postal history of the area.


Annual General Meeting and Auction, March 22nd 2014

Report & pictures by Nick Hackney


The AGM went much as one might expect! The Officers Reports were noted and accepted, and had already been sent out to all Members. The team of Officers and Committee Members were re-elected, with a plea for additional help on the Auction front - please contact Susan McEwen to volunteer!. We welcomed two members from Singapore who were active in the Auction that followed. Our participation in Singapore 2015 was announced. I will run from 14th - 19th August 2015 with an MSG Meeting there on 15th September. Many of our members in Singapore are active in running the Expo.

The prices realised by the Auction lots will be published in the Newsletter. I was bemused by a die proof which fetched £2,600 against a Reserve of £60!
