RPSL Visit 2006
Hans Smith, Dr David Cumming
(President) & Prof Ray Welland (Secretary).
On 13th October 2016 the Society held its 2500th meeting, we had
an appropriate display of Clyde Coast Postal History by Hans
Smith FSPSL for the occasion. Hans showed material from the
small ports and coastal towns of Ayrshire, Renfrewshire, Bute, Cumbrae and Argyllshire. He showed many letters coming from
abroad and landed at these ports showing many scarce Ship Letter
handstamps. The display also showed many postmarks from the 18th
and 19th centuries with pre-stamp, maltese cross, numbered,
local namestamps and datestamps from these towns and ports.
Viewing the display.
At the Meeting Dr Stewart Gardiner
was presented with the Caledonian Rose Bowl for the best display
of the last session.
