Mar 9th: CUBA – Sheila Den (Aberdeen PS)

President Rab Yeardly welcomed Mrs Sheila Den from Aberdeen Philatelic Society, who had offered to display some of her collection of Stamps (more than 150 sheets) and associated philatelic memorabilia from CUBA.

Her display started with showing various means of communication, followed by the first stamp issue in 1855. These mostly showed Leaders heads, together with misprints, forgeries etc. This was followed by the standard stamps intermixed with commemorative issues displaying Cuba’s main industries and exports, such as Tobacco, Bananas, Pineapples, live Turkeys sold on the streets, and RUM!! A very well set up display.

Alistair Moore gave the vote of thanks, and the Members responded wholeheartedly.
