Sept 19th: ESTONIA – Raymond Baldock (Lanarkshire PS)

Estonia has had a very complex postal history, going from being governed as part of the Russian Empire (1721 to 1981), occupied by German forces (1941 to 1944) with German stamps overprinted, with short interventions in between, including a transitional period during their War of Independence (1918 – 1920). All these changes generated a great deal of postal variation, and Ray’s displays, which were excellently presented, mirrored all the foregoing.

The President called on Ian Gray to propose the vote of thanks, in which he commented on the width of Ray’s display, not without reference to Railways, and asked the Members to show their appreciation, which they did, willingly, in the usual fashoin.
