Mar 7: DUMFRIES STAMP CLUB

Four Members from Dumfries Stamp Club visited Falkirk and District Philatelic Society. Each Visitor had very different themes in their displays. Paul Wilson showed a variety of G.B. booklets, Queen’s Diamond Jubilee definitives on stamp Postcards (PHQ’s) and other Commemoratives. John McGonagall had a fine display of Swedish Philately items of Anniversaries, Commemoratives, Postal Union and relating to King Gustav V. Lea Wilson produced a wide variety of early

Western Australia stamps depicting, among others, deliveries of mail in the outback by bicyles and camels, with one or two quite rare items. Lastly, Ian McDowell had a very impressive display of stamps of the the Third Reich. Stamps and Postcards portrayed Hitler’s dictatorship over Germany and elsewhere from the mid 1930’s to the end of the Second World War. It was good to see a PC of Hitler’s bunker demolished!!

The vote of thanks was given by Stuart Haldane.
