Len Stanway showed Autumn 2015 issues and those of Singapore Stampex 2015.
Andrew Norris displayed a Dead Letter Office cachet on a 1906 cover (the earliest known DLO cover to Singapore)
Carl Stott had brought a material to make up a philatelic ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS’ (including the one Straits issue to feature the word Malaya).
Richard Berry, who was attending as Peter Cockburn’s guest, showed covers to/ from/ about early USA collectors, dealers, societies and authors; and a cover from Malaya outbound to a Col. Redford of the Rhodesian Rifles). This last sparked the idea for a mini-collection/ study of mail showing connections between Rhodesians and Malaya during the Confrontation, which Richard is pursuing.
A positive and studious note on which
to round out a very agreeable afternoon’s philately.
That's All Folks
