2500th Meeting

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.
