Round One - Andrew Norris, Sue McEwen, Charles Keel, Graham Coles & David Tett
REPAST & MEMBERS’ DISPLAYS – CINDERELLAS
15 members and one guest had an enjoyable couple of hours chatting over refreshments, before getting down to the business of displays of Cinderellas.
term is deliberately ambiguous, allowing members free range to bring
a wide range of materials.
Charles Keel showed a sheet of Singapore’s Vanishing Trades series and the Royal Mail sheets of the tourist attractions of Malaysia for this month’s KL Stampex (topical or what?).
David Tett had a bijou display of very high quality POW material: a cover from the US Submarine Grenadier which was sunk in shallow waters by Japanese bombers, whose crew ended up in a POW camp in Japan; a hand-drawn cartoon on an Imperial Japanese Army postcard ‘Show me the way to go home’ by an Australian awaiting release after the Japanese surrender; and a POW letter from a Japanese infantryman in Changi in 1946.
