Jan 10: INDIA- Stanley Gray

This started with the first stamp issued in 1847 for use in Scinde and continued through the East India Company designs and the India stamps up to partition in 1947. A selection of postcards and postmarks relating to the Coronation Durbar of 1903 and 1911 was presented. Examples of airmail from 1911 was followed by crash covers salvaged from aircraft. The display closed with rocket mail.
