  1. Do you know of anyone who would be willing to exchange GB used stamps from 1911 to 1921 for French used stamps? We have had a request from a Frenchman.

  2. Another question that has arrived is for details of a cachet designer in the 1970s. The name is S W Watson. Can anyone help or give guidance of where to look.?

We really want to make sure that all societies promote themselves on the Internet. We feel that it is an essential way to reach new members, particularly those wishing to find a new hobby or reignite a hobby of their youth. They are more likely to be internet-wise. It is also useful for keeping in touch with existing and older members, who are less able to make it to meetings.

Free of charge Website design and initial training (there are conditions and you may wish to add things which will attract fees)
