Apr 11: MEMBER’S NIGHT – “Out With The Old, In With The New”

Six Members gave their own interpretation of this theme, all of which were quite novel and interesting. Space does not permit a detailed description of the entries. However, to give a feel of their efforts, I will report as follows:- Jim Gray showed Bavarian Railways from Steam to Electric, Jim Young displayed GB stamps from King George VIth to the present Queen Elizabeth II, while Stanley Gray put on a fine collection of eleven countries from mid-1800’s to the 1950’s. Alan Watson showed the very new “Post and Go” stamps with overprints, Jim Morrison displayed the philatelic changes and change of name from Nyasaland (old) to Malawi (new), and lastly, Mike Turnbull turned the clock back with a short display of “Airships”. Who said stamp collecting was boring?
