The Annual General Meeting was held in London on Friday 8th September 2017

A fairly informal AGM was held at the Greek restaurant across the road from Royal National Hotel, where there were a few dealers selling some nice Thai material. We all brought along something to discuss and were amazed to see one member's fortuitous purchase of a pre-stamp letter to Rev. Dan Beech Bradley in Bangkok.

British Library London - Public Display from the Row Collection

To mark the passing of King Bhumipol and the forthcoming coronation of Prince Vajiralongkorn, the British Library has mounted a number of sheets from the Row Collection of Siam into the public display panels. It is also almost one hundred years since the Row Collection was given to the British Museum.

The exhibition includes some early rarities, including the very first issues of Thailand.

It is worth noting that serious researchers may, by appointment, see many more items from the Row, Tapling, De La Rue and UPU collections, to name but a few.

Updated Publication - The Definitive Stamps of King Bhumipol Adulyadej

The society has printed issue 3 of Derek Bingham's work on the details of these stamps. The price is 20 plus P&P. Please contact the Publications Secretary, Jonathan Manning if you wish to buy a copy.
