After what had seemed at times like an eternity, finally, the Society was allowed to meet in person once again, and what a great night. Despite restrictions meaning we couldn’t offer refreshments, we soldiered through and saw members present a variety of material, much of it collected during the lockdowns of the previous eighteen months. The theme for the evening was letters C and D and of course, members took great delight in coming up with a variety of ways they could interpret this. As a consequence, we ended up seeing material that we would otherwise not have seen and would have lain in people’s collections until next called upon.
The interpretations for the night meant we saw presentations of:
- Czechoslovakian and Czech republic postcards and airmail etiquettes
- Censorship of Scandinavian mail
- Cats and Dogs
- Charity and Conventions
- Covers with the GB Arms series
- Cats from around the World
- Cameroons Commemoratives
- Cape of Good Hope stamps
- C is for Cover
Everyone enjoyed themselves and we can’t wait for the next evening when we will be listening to a talk from Mr Max SMith on ‘To and From India by Air’.
Here are just a sample of the images of the material we saw:
