Nov 1st: IRAQ – Garry Cheyne

Guest speaker Gary Cheyne began by saying that when he looked at countries he could collect he selected Iraq as it seemed to be the cheapest. His collection is now enormous starting with the Turkish stamps overprinted “Iraq in British Occupation”. His display then covered the issues of several monarchs with examples of flaws and inverted overprints. There were also many postcards and an air letter form from 1933. The second round covered issues from 1980 to date and were mainly propaganda issues with the majority showing President Hussain.

The vote of thanks for a fine display was proposed by the President Bill Izett.
