Mar 8: GLASGOW THEMATIC

Three members of the Glasgow Thematic society displayed part of their collections. The firat round started with Eric Ross showing some glimpses of climbers ascending Mount everest, with information about the various groups and individuals who have climbed the mountain. This was ¬†followed by Bill McKinlay who had some very fine stamps and details of the Dover to Ostend ferries over the years. The second round started with Ian Hamilton who showed “Railway Cinderallas”, which, while these items are not truely stamps, they are advertising labels which have postal associations and the final display came from Gary Cheyne (in absentia), and this related to German offensive(s) during World War 1.

Vote of thanks: Bruce A Petrie.
