Our Chairman Michael was pleased to welcome back Alan who was accompanier by his wife to give a beautifully written up display of Prince Edward Island. After giving a detailed view of the Island which is Ice bound for most of the winter which made postal exchanges difficult in the early years, Alan showed postal items starting with a letter from 1774 running through to the first postage date stamp of 1814 and on to the "Postage stamp era"

After the break Alan displayed items from Queensland which included registered mail from 1856 and the entire range of stamp issues on covers from the state.

Alan and his wife Carol are pictured below.

Trains, Boats and Planes

Giles du Boulay - Danzig

Giles began his talk with trains and boats which were used to deliver mail from and to Danzig which we now know as Gdansk.

Gdansk is now part of Poland and Giles display continued with the building of the first airfield in 1910 and the first airmail letter service which began in 1920 and lasted just 10 days due to a very harsh winter airmail stamps consisted of overprints on German definitives.

All aspects of postage were covered up until the German occupation of 1945.
