Sept 8th: GB EVENING – Alan Watson and Ian Anderson

Vice President Jean Osborne welcomed the Members, and after Club business was discussed, invited Member Ian Anderson to speak to his part collection of which consisted of a display of “Great Britain Miniature Sheets”. This was extremely well presented and written up, and his 72 sheets covered the period from 1978 to date.

Ian’s display was followed by another fine display by Treasurer Alan Watson, who entertained the Members with his witty explanation of his collection of the Philatelic Bureau’s issues of “Post and Go” stamps. Again, this display was varied and attractive, perhaps more attractive than the stamps as issued. Alan finished his participation with a short, but very attractive display of stamps showing “Great Britain Heraldry”. Again, well presented and very colourful.

Vice President Jean proposed the vote of thanks to both Ian and Alan, to which the Members responded cordially.
