Mar 4: GREENLAND – Margaret Morris

The display opened with the 1905 parcel post stamps, followed by examples of mail with Danish stamps and the 1938 Greenland definitive stamps. The wartime mail – internal, censored and American forces was covered. The definitive issued from 1945 and their use on mail followed. A short section of modern stamps displayed wildlife in and around Greenland. Examples of mail from various expeditions to Greenland and airmail from 1929 closed the display. Throughout the display, anecdotes from Margret’s visit to Greenland enliven the talk.
