Nov 15: WAR TAX STAMPS – Paul Stephens (Perth PS)

This was a unique display of WAR TAXTAMPS. These stamps were overprinted, during the war with “WAR” or “WAR STAMP” or “WAR TAX STAMP” or the like, the purpose being to raise funds to support each country’s war effort. His display encompassed soome 50 countries and was displayed on 144 sheets in alphabetical order, ranging from Antigua to Turks and Caicos Islands, and incorporated a showing of Forgeries and Misprints.

The vote of thanks was given by Walter Bruce.
