Oct 6th – PRESIDENT’S NIGHT – Robert Yeardly

Rab’s first display was mainly early days triangulars from The Cape of Good Hope, which was, presumably, partially a cost cutting exercise!! A very fine collection of overprints, forgeries and different printers, clearly presented and very tidy.

His second display was an unusual collection of South Africa, starting at The Cape of Good Hope and reaching contiguous States/Countries, where one country, if that country ran out of stamps, could use their neighbours’ stamps until, presumably, they had a fresh delivery from their printer!! Again, well displayed and written up, in a straight-forward, easy to read manner.

Packet Secretary, Jean Osborne, was called upon to give the vote of thanks, which she did in her usual Ladylike manner, and to which the Members shewed their appreciation.
