GBPS Display to RPSL - 1 December 2022

Post by admin »

Advanced Notice – 1 December 2022
GBPS Display to the RPSL

The GBPS have been invited by the President of the Royal Philatelic Society London, Peter Cockburn, to display to their society on Thursday 1 December 2022. The GBPS council has gratefully accepted this offer to display and it has been added to the GBPS programme for the coming season.

The GBPS will be putting together an ensemble display of 62 frames (each of 16 standard size sheets) and this notice is a request for submissions from the membership of a single frame of material. We want to show the full breadth and depth of GB collecting so everything from pre-stamp to modern decimal GB, overprinted for use abroad, postal stationery, fiscals, Cinderella, etc. are all welcome and indeed encouraged.

December may still seem a long way off but experience has shown that it takes a lot of time to collate submissions into a coherent display so the sooner you are able to offer material the better. In addition, as we only have 62 frames to fill but can boast of a membership of around 900, space is at a premium. "Apply early to avoid disappointment" - as the saying goes!

In the first instance please email our Meetings Manager, David Griffin, via or ring David on 07450 113084 to offer a frame of material for the display. Please provide your full name and contact details (email/phone), the subject of your proposed frame and the period it covers (pre-stamp, QV, etc. if not obvious from the subject).

More details surrounding the day itself will appear in the next Newsletter and on the GBPS website in due course.

Attending the meeting

RPSL meetings are open to their members, fellows and invited guests. If you wish to attend the meeting but are not a member of the Royal then please contact David (details as above) and ask to be added to the guest list. If you have not been pre-registered on the RPSL guest list we cannot guarantee you will be admitted on the day.
