Western Tasmania - Prospectors and the Post Office Malcolm Groom INTRODUCTION Western Tasmania was first sighted by Abel Tasman in 1642 and remained uninhabited by Europeans until 1822 when a Convict settlement was established in Macquarie Harbour closing in 1833. Surveyors and Government geologists seeking gold failed to find any significant mineralisation until James 'Philosopher' Smith discovered tin at Mount Bischoff in 1871. The richest tin mine in the world it returned 200 times the original capital invested. Prospectors following this discovery led to significant finds of gold along the Pieman River and on to Mt Heemskirk in 1877 and Zeehan in 1882. Zeehan became the third largest town in the Colony. In 1883 gold was found at the Iron Blow and copper at Mount Lyell in 1886 The postal service grew to service the influx of prospectors, hoteliers, timber cutters and their families. From 1874 62 offices had been opened in total, many for short periods. In 1911 the population on the West Coast represented 13% of the island. Today only six offices 13 Aug 2020 at 14:00UK : Online

The Pacific Steam Navigation Company Mike Roberts This presentation covers the origins of the Company in 1840 and its first operations on the west coast of South America. It was the founders’ ambition to control the post, issue stamps and limit competition. This failed but a successful period of domination as a contract mail carrier followed. The company expanded and became the largest steamship company in the world by 1870. The presentation shows the transition from a destination led service to cruising and cargo carrying before its eventual demise in 1965.21 May 2020 at 14:00UK : Online

Brunei Claire Scott Brunei, the country of my birth, has never before formed the subject of a major display to the Society. The display uses the stamps, postal history and ephemera of the country to tell the story of its development, beginning with the concession issue of 1895 and continuing through joining the Straits Settlements Postal Union in 1906, the UPU in 1916 and then, with the advent of airmail services and the discovery of oil, to becoming one of the wealthiest but smallest countries in the world. The display ends with the death of “my” Sultan in 1988.23 Jan 2020 at 13:00UK : London
The First Four Decades of Mail by Railroad in the United States of America (1838 to 1880) Hugh Feldman Although stage coach companies were the first to use early American railroads to carry mails under contract in the early 1830s, it was not until 1838 that railroad companies were contracted for this service. In that year, all railroads were designated “Post Roads”. The development of services initially using Route Agents to accompany the mails developing to Railway Post Offices introduced widely in 1864 are illustrated using covers bearing a wide range of railroad markings.9 Jan 2020 at 17:00UK : London
Paris by Night Seija-Riitta Laakso Paris in the Belle Époque era, ca 1896–1915: drama theatre, light-hearted operettas, most beautiful singers and actresses, cocottes, the French can-can, rough cabarets, and all the nightlife behind and beyond. The wild nineties, and the beginning of a new century! Picture postcards played an important role in this sparkling, world famous business. They were published for advertising and collecting, and to be sent to friends all over the world. The postcards were drawn by renowned artists or photographed by well-known ateliers, they were miniature versions12 Dec 2019 at 17:00UK : London

Egypt: The Hotel Post Offices Richard Wheatley First came the merchants on the Overland Route to the Far East, to be followed from 1869 by voyagers on the ships sailing through the newly opened Suez Canal. Some stopped in Egypt to discover the ancient temples and these tourists required hotel accommodation and to correspond back home. So the magnificent hotels came into being, some of them with post offices inside. This is their story.7 Nov 2019 at 17:00UK : London

Russian Civil War – Foreign Armies Fighting in Russia Edward Klempka It is a fitting tribute to the soldiers of many foreign armies who fought in Russia against the Bolsheviks that to mark the 100th anniversary of allied activity, a display of the postal history of the period is shown to Members and Fellows of the RPSL. The display shows postal history from the following armies: Belgium, British Empire (Canada, India and New Zealand), Czechoslovakia, France, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Poland, Romania, Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden and Finland), Turkey, the United States and Yugoslavia. In addition to the Allied Military involvement material is included from Germany and Turkey together with material from the many White Armies fighting in Russia.10 Oct 2019 at 13:00UK : London

Colonial American Postal History 1675-1783 Tim O'Connor The presentation surveys the American Postal System 1675-1783. The earliest postal efforts are briefly reviewed using archival material. The first postal markings, town stamps and rates are shown. The growth of the System during the Acts of Queen Anne and George III are reviewed in detail. Problems specific to the American effort are shown, along with solutions. 14 Jun 2018 at 17:00 UK : London
Group Display Polar Philately Polar Philately consists of philatelic material with an Arctic or Antarctic subject matter. It has been an organized international philatelic activity since the mid-1950s. Seeing a broad display of material in this field should interest those currently involved in Polar Philately and those with a curiosity or developing interest in Polar Philately. This is an uncommon opportunity to view a variety of extraordinary Polar material at a single venue. 31 May 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Selections from the Princely Collection HSH Prince Albert of Monaco The display commences historically with the first philatelic signs at the beginning of the 18th Century until the introduction of postage stamps in 1885 and highlight the philately of Monaco with its two offices, Monaco and Menton, with their respective French, then Sardinian, and then again French administrations. A selection will show most of the postmarks and cancellations used during this period of nearly two centuries, one that was also a busy period historically. The office at Nice used four successive Sardinian issues and, following the re-attachment of the County of Nice to France in 1860, French stamps were cancelled with Sardinian cancellations for a brief period of three months whilst awaiting the delivery of French cancellers. This study is displayed for the first time ever here in its entirety. All the stamps of Monaco from 1885 as well as the unadopted designs, drawings, proofs, essays, perforated and imperforate sheets are an important part of the collection, and a small17 May 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Cayman Islands: From Jamaica 'used in' to Queen Elizabeth II James Podger This display covers the period from when the Cayman Islands first used adhesive postage stamps up to the present reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The philatelic history of the Islands is well known for the surcharge provisional issues and the scandal surrounding them. In today’s display, I hope to show the viewer that, as well as the surcharge period, there is much of interest from these Islands, which makes collecting both a joy and a challenge. 3 May 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Regional Display South West Region South West fellows and members will display a wide range of cameo exhibits ranging from Ascension Island to Whitfield King Stationery. The half yearly meetings at Tiverton have an established format that has one or two main speakers in the morning with SW fellows and members providing a ‘Philatelic Farrago’ of short displays in the afternoon. This display is in part modelled on those afternoon presentations where over the years we have seen superb and wide-ranging material, some of which we aim to share at No 41 in April. 19 Apr 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Discovering Seahorses Bryan Kearsley George V high values, better known as Seahorses, remain one of the few iconic British stamps. The display covers the 26-year period these stamps were in circulation, including the many shades and varieties they generated. It also explains how to identify the work of the four printers involved and shows many of the uses to which these stamps were put. 5 Apr 2018 at 17:00 UK : London
The Postal History of Tuscany 1851-1862 Vittorio Morani This display illustrates the Postal History of Tuscany from the Ducal issue of 1 April 1851 to 31 December 1862. On 1 January 1863 new rates were introduced and a new postal law was extended to all the Italian provinces, ending the postal history of Tuscany. Tuscan postal history will be shown in three main sections: domestic Tuscan rates, mail exchanged with the old Italian States, as well as incoming mail, and mail exchanged in both directions with foreign countries beyond Italy. In each section, the following periods will be presented: the Ducal period, the period of the Provisional Government of Tuscany, and the Italian period up to 31 December 1862. On 1 January 1863 any differences between the Tuscan and the Italian postal rules ceased. The postal history of Tuscany will be described with many great rarities of Tuscan philately. Many rare items of the country will be shown, and incoming mail of foreign origin will also be presented. This is probably the first time that a pos22 Mar 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
The Austro-Hungarian Issue of 1867: 150 years of Austro-Hungarian Compromise Dr Harald Lang No other stamp issue is so closely linked with the history of Austria and Hungary as the 1867 issue. Following the wars of 1859 and 1866, the Austrian Empire was weakened in its foreign policy and domestic politics. As a result, in 1867 the monarchy was divided between Austria and Hungary. Hungary became a separate state with independent legislation and administration, including its postal administration. Therefore, on 9 April 1867 an order was placed with the Austrian State Printing House to design a new stamp series. It was to comprise a neutral stamp design and a uniform value designation, to be accepted in both halves of the Empire. The result was the ‘1867 issue’ with the head of the joint monarch Franz-Josef, who ruled in Austria as Emperor and in Hungary as King. The denomination ‘kr’ stood for both the currency units ‘kreuzer’ and ‘krajczar’. The ‘1867 issue’ was only valid in Hungary for about four years until 31 July 1871, but in Austria for over seventeen years until 31 Oc22 Feb 2018 at 17:00 UK : London
Group Display East Africa Study Circle With the ‘Scramble for Africa’ and its various imperial players as a backdrop, the stamps and postal history of East Africa offer both diversity and complexity. Members of the East Africa Study Circle will be presenting a wide cross section of material from British, German and Belgian perspectives. The display will be essentially chronological, from early Zanzibar letters via Uganda missionary issues and classic British East Africa through two World Wars with their associated boundary and political changes to the post-independence era. 15 Feb 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Belgium: Revenue, Airmail, Booklets, Local Post, Postage Due, Coil Stamps, Railway Stamps Patrick Maselis A miscellany of iconic items from Belgium will be shown, ranging from early 12th Century letters through to back-of-the-book items including postage dues, railway stamps, fiscals, booklets and coil stamps, local and parcel posts. 8 Feb 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Group Display Russian Academy (Igor Rodin) On display by the Russian Academy will be: the Postal History of Moscow; the Postal History of the North-West of Russia in 1806-1917; Postal relations between the Russian Empire and France (1858-1875); Tercentenary of the Romanov Dynasty - the first commemorative issue of Russian Empire; Russian Imperial pre-printed stationery used in Armenia at the beginning of the 20th century; Rarities of the Zemstvo Post; Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic 1918 – 1923 (traditional philately); Soviet Military Censorship 1939-1949; the story from the artist about the creation of the Soviet “Penny Black” issue and the creation of the first definitive stamp issue of the Russian Federation; and the development of the Soviet/Russian space mail. 25 Jan 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
Morocco Postal History (1852 - 1925) Maurice Hadida The Postal History of Morocco is a fascinating field, as there were postal services operated - at times simultaneously - by France, the United Kingdom, Spain and Germany (in order of inauguration). These foreign post offices or agencies in Morocco gradually joined the General Postal Union, later the UPU. In addition, there were two postal services in Morocco that never formed part of the UPU: the Chérifien Postal Service and the Local Posts. The display comprises postal history from all six postal services. 11 Jan 2018 at 13:00 UK : London
'Your Very Loving Madeline' Dane Garrod The Christmas presentation with a difference – bring your wives, husbands and partners as guests. In the mid-1980s, an immense cache of envelopes containing all the correspondence for the period 1872 to 1913 was allegedly discovered in an estate outbuilding of the ruined mansion Edwinsford, near Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire, and was soon dispersed through the philatelic market. This presentation is part of the challenging and rewarding gathering together of the postal history and other relevant material, enabling an evaluation of Sir James (Joe) Drummond and his wife, Madeline, and their place in the highest levels of British society, as well as family involvement with military service in India and in the South African War. Within the frames will be letters to the teenage Sir James Drummond expressing admiration and instructions to “burn this instantly” – fortunately he did not – and progress through letters to and from his wife, Madeline, as well as correspondence from Simla, India, 7 Dec 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
The Embossed Stamps of Great Britain 1841-1973 Dr. Alan Huggins This display will present a survey of the embossed adhesive stamps and postal stationery produced during the period 1841–1973. The objective is to put into context the ongoing influence of the embossed essays produced in 1840 to meet the requirement for stamps to be struck on paper supplied by the public, on the subsequent designs used for postal stationery from 1841 to 1973 and adhesive stamps from 1847 to 1854. The emphasis will be primarily on demonstrating the progressive chronological development of the stamp designs and the range of purposes for which these stamps were used rather than on detailed study of any particular issue. The display will utilise the showcases in the foyer and the large library in addition to the usual frame layout in the meeting room. 23 Nov 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
The Pre-Stamp Period of El Salvador Guillermo Gallegos The period covered in the display mainly focuses on the postal history of El Salvador from the 1780s, when the first postal markings were introduced, to 1867, year of issue of its first postage stamps. El Salvador was, at first, part of the Kingdom of Guatemala, a Spanish Colonial entity, and then of the Central American Federation before becoming an independent Republic. Relevant Pre-stamp material and related documents like Postal Ordinances and Mail Notifications have been included to show the postal evolution of the Salvadorian territory from Spanish Colony to Independent Republic. As El Salvador is seldom covered in philatelic publications, proofs from the first issues of El Salvador will be included as an appendix to give a broader view of the country's philately. 9 Nov 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
Group Display Belgian Congo Study Circle The Belgian Congo Study Circle BCSC is proud to be displaying a rather nice selection of collections from their members with a focus on the first issues with proofs and important covers. The Belgian Congo air mail section will be particularly well represented starting with the very early flights of the 1920s and further with the air mail link with the British African line. Postal history of both WW1 and WW2 will also be well represented. Last, but not least, a display introducing the relationship between Belgian Congo and the British Colonies in Africa. 26 Oct 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
Group Display Deutscher Altbriefsammler-Verein (DASV) Approximately 25 members of DASV (Deutscher Altbriefsammler-Verein) will be attending personally and have their one- or two-frame displays showing all aspects of philately: pre-philately, classical, semi-classical and modern. German, European and overseas collections will be on display. Highlights will be the only known first day cover of the first German stamp, the 1-kreuzer black, known as the 'Schwarzer Einser', the only known first day cover of the second German Stamp the 'Sachsen Dreier', the red 3-Pfennig-stamp of Saxony, the only known full sheet of the same stamp and a complete double sheet of Bavaria's No.1. 12 Oct 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
Geneva from the Cantonal to the Federal Post Jean Voruz The birth of the Swiss Franc in Geneva was one of the most amazing processes in Swiss postal history. From 1843 Geneva had issued its own Cantonal stamps that used the same standard as French currency. The new Federal State decided on postal and monetary unification. The display shows exceptional letters franked at rates before and after the unification and during the transition period supporting the change of parity from 70 to 100 Swiss Rappen for 1 Franc of Geneva. 28 Sep 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
West Indies Courtesy of Her Majesty The Queen The 2017 display from the Royal Philatelic Collection by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen covers the West Indies. The display focuses on the Bahamas and Jamaica, with selections from the Cayman Islands albums. The Bahamas, conventionally treated as part of the West Indies, appears never to have been shown fully to the Society, and the display this year will include King George VI material. Jamaica was last shown fully 45 years ago (and included material from both King George VI’s reign as well as pre-Independence material, as will this year’s display). The Cayman Islands (for long a Dependency of Jamaica until the latter’s Independence) nevertheless had some interesting stamp issues of its own which will be shown, including the material relating to the ‘dolphin fish’ episode. 14 Sep 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
Displays by The Monday Club (Library Volunteers) RPSL The RPSL Library’s dedicated team of volunteers will be displaying a wide range of material including catapult mail, postal history from Hamburg and Russia, and stamps from Belgium, Finland, New Zealand and Romania.

Chinese International Air Mail to 1949 Frank Walton The president’s display features a presentation on the mail from China that travelled by air at some point on its route. The display is broadly split into three sections: Pre-WW2 – when the six international airlines competed with one another on price and service; WW2 – with complex routes that were forced upon the carriers by military campaigns closing traditional routes; and Post-WW2 – although stability came back to the routes taken, hyperinflation caused chaos to the rates. Although all material shown has been flown, the treatment of the collection is fundamentally postal history rather than aerophilately. 8 Jun 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
Selection from the Society’s Collections RPSL This meeting will be a unique opportunity for Members to view a range of material from 18 different collections which form the major part of those held by the Society. Although selections from many of these will have been seen previously over the years at Annual General Meeting and other displays, as far as possible the items chosen will be from sections which have not been seen recently. Besides the 52 frames in the meeting room there will also be material on view in the display cases. 18 May 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
GB Line-engraved Plate Repairs 1840–1855 Scott Treacey A presentation of the early GB 1d and 2d issues from plates and positions that were subject to re-entering, thus existing in two or more identifiable states. The main emphasis will be on repaired plates from the 1853 to 1855 period – an area that is not generally covered in any depth in the literature and where, even today, new repairs continue to be discovered regularly. 11 May 2017 at 17:00 UK : London

South Australia Postal History 1834–1900 Pat Grimwood-Taylor South Australia, unlike the other Australian colonies, was established for free settlers only and was far less populated than NSW or Victoria. Surviving mail is far less. However, this display includes the earliest known letters, rare overseas and Contract mail, much of which was included in the International Large Gold medal exhibit. 6 Apr 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
GB Railway Station Cancellations from 1840 Bill Pipe The introduction and uses of postal markings as issued to Railway Stations from the earliest recorded undated mark in the world: the MISSENT TO/DERBY R.O of Boxing Day 1840 and the worlds earliest dated railway station cancel of Gloucester station of the 18th March 1842 right up to 2015. In the display which will cover the 175 years to 2015, there will be examples of all convention postal markings from undated and dated double arc cancels, numerals, duplexes, squared circles, including the unique NORMANTON STATION, single and double ring cancels, travellers and skeletons, rubbers, straight-line marks, postage due marks, instructional marks, missent marks, parcel post labels and cancels, registered mail, railway letter stamps and much more. Every sheet will have “something added” and the condition of the exhibits is of “exhibition quality” with many unique and less common markings and usages. 23 Mar 2017 at 13:00 UK : London
Pakistan beyond the Catalogue Mike J Roberts To say that the Pakistan Postal Authorities were not fully prepared for the introduction of decimal currency on 1 January 1961 would be something of an understatement. The hurried overprinting of existing stamps by Pakistan Security Printing Corporation and particularly Times Press produced a feast of varieties. But the real gems are the stamps locally handstamped in District Treasuries and post offices throughout the country. Rarely encountered by general collectors, largely ignored and totally misunderstood by Pakistan specialists, and certainly never mentioned in polite philatelic company, these are dismissed by Mr Gibbons as “outside the scope of this catalogue”. You have been warned! 9 Mar 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
Orange Free State Postal Stationery Mike Smith The display covers the postal stationery issues of the O.F.S. during the Republican Period (18841900). These can be divided into two distinct groups, the issues printed by De La Rue in London and the local issues printed by Borckenhagen in Bloemfontein whenever supplies ran out or new values were required, the demand for which did not warrant the expense of a new De La Rue printed issue. Particular emphasis will be placed on the local issues as their method of production makes them unique within the field of postal stationery. 23 Feb 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
The Work of the RPSL Ltd Expert Committee Chris Harman This presentation offers a short history of the Expert Committee. It explains some of the equipment which we use and shows the extensive reference collections available to us, including the privilege of access to the collection of the society's Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, in order to make comparisons. However, much of the presentation will focus on some of our past patients and the sort of conundrums that these produce for expertisers. Almost by definition, expert opinions tend to be sought for more challenging and difficult items. Although many of these can be relatively straightforward with knowledge, the right equipment, and reference material, others can be very difficult. 9 Feb 2017 at 17:00 UK : London
Jamaica Steve Jarvis and Paul Wright This display is a quick gallop through as many different Jamaica philately topics as could be included in the 52 frames.

Czechoslovakia: The Allegory Issue 1920 Yvonne Wheatley In 1920 stamp production was in its infancy in Czechoslovakia. The definitive set, the Allegory issue, underwent trials of printing methods, perforation and colours. These factors combined to make it an issue worthy of study. The display contains many examples of experimental material as well as flaws caused by the haste in which they were prepared. 8 Dec 2016 at 17:00 UK : London

Classic Revenues of the British West Indies Michael Medlicott The display will comprise elements of a collection formed over 40 years, and show adhesive and impressed stamps from the reign of Queen Victoria issued by selected West Indian Colonies. Included will be artists’ essays, die and plate proofs as well as the issued stamps both loose and on documents. With few exceptions, almost all the major issued rarities of the region will be shown, some of which have survived in minute numbers. As their designs and usages often cross over with Postage issues, the display may appeal to collectors not normally interested in Revenues. 13 Oct 2016 at 17:00 UK : London

China Paul Davey Any display claiming to show China comprehensively is doomed to failure due to the breadth of the subject. This display therefore introduces early mail in China and the foreign post offices then concentrates on subjects less studied and not previously displayed to the Society. These include commemoratives before 1950, perfins, anti-bandit controls, Taiwan in the Japanese and immediate post-war periods, Communist regionals and postage dues. 9 Jun 2016 at 13:00 UK : London

This display features a wide range of different aspects of Sierra Leone philately, with essays, proofs, specimens and issued stamps from 1859 to independence in 1961. Several categories of postal history will also be shown, with early mail both to and from Sierra Leone from the beginning of the 19th century.

The post in Paris up to the Revolution Christopher Hitchen The French General post evolved from the Royal post in the 16th century. An office is recorded in the capital as early as 1576. By 1700 the post was well organised and to make the calculation of rates somewhat easier the use of departure marks became the norm so that the distance a letter had travelled was quite clear. Paris used paid marks from around 1703, the earlier ones in the form of seal like devices without a town name. The display begins with the development of the General Post in the capital and continues with the private local post, La Petite Poste which opened in June 1760. France is a very centralised country, everything is run from Paris and the post office is no exception. A number of national services were housed at the head office and these are also covered – the Dead letter office, newspapers and printed matter. 31 Mar 2016 at 17:00 UK : London

Falkland Islands Mike J Y Roberts The Postal History of the Falkland Islands 1827 -1945. Although the United Kingdom had claimed the Islands many years before and had occupied them briefly in 1765, it was not until 1833 that they became permanently occupied. This presentation will attempt to explain the postal history from the time before this assertion of British rule and take matters forward to the end of World War II. The earliest items all emanate from the whaling industry, in the main from the USA; the Islands being a particular favourite of some of the New England private ship owners. The earliest packet mail goes back to 1843 via the South American ports of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Stamps were first issued in 1878 and 1879; these immediately preceding a formal mail contract between the Falkland Island Government and the Kosmos Company of Germany. The Pacific Steam Navigation Company took this over in 1901 and operated exclusively until 1917. Inter island mail was important in the Islands as it wa26 Nov 2015 at 17:00 UK : London

The Duchy of Schleswig to 1920 Chris King (Presidential Display) The Duchies of Slesvig (Schleswig in German) and Holstein were associated with the Danish Crown from the 15th century, until the Second Schleswig War of 1864 and the seizure by Prussia and Austria. From around 1830 sections of the population began to identify with German or Danish nationality and political movements followed. In Denmark, the National Liberal Party used the Schleswig question as part of their programme and demanded that the Duchy be incorporated in the Danish kingdom under the slogan "Denmark to the Eider". This caused a conflict between Denmark and the German states, which led to the Schleswig-Holstein Question of the 19th century. When the National Liberals came to power in Denmark, in 1848, it provoked an uprising of ethnic Germans who supported Schleswig's ties with Holstein. This led to the First Schleswig War. Denmark was victorious, although more through politics than strength of arms. The London Protocol of 1852 caused Prussian troops to pull out of Schleswig an18 Jun 2015 at 13:00 UK : London
