The first meeting of St. Albans, Harpenden & District Philatelic Society in 2020 takes place a week later than usual – on Wednesday 22 January - and will feature a talk and display on many aspects of the story of Poland since it regained its independence in 1918.
Beginning with the first stamps of the new Poland issued in 1918 those present will then be given a display of “first flight covers” to show the development of air mail routes between the wars, followed by the German occupation issues and a look at the stamps of Poland from 1944 to the present day. The speaker specialises in the stamps and postal history of Poland and the evening will not only offer an insight into Poland but into many facets of the hobby of philately.
As the local society serving all in the St Albans area who are interested in stamps and postal history, the club welcomes visitors to its meetings. So why not come along and see for yourself and have an enjoyable evening even if you don’t collect yourself.
