Sept 20: NEW HEBRIDES – Harvey Duncan, AFRICAN HOMELANDS – George Forster

Harvey displayed all the issues from the New Hebrides from 1908 to 1990.  As the New Hebrides was a condominium between GB and France, each set of stamps issued by one country was duplicated by the other except for the values on the stamps. They used the same pictures on their issues, with the exception of two issues, De Gaulle and the Coronation.

George displayed stamps from the African Homelands, now part of South Africa. He displayed issues from Transkei (1976-94), Bophuthatswana (1979-85), Venda (1979-86) and Ciskei (1981-88).

Vote of thanks – Jim Morrison
