This website was created by Otto Peetoom and the aim & object was to make it interesting and informative.

Otto sadly passed away in July 2020, however it remains online, with much of his work still intact and available to collectors.

There are numerous Articles and information connected with South African Philately, plus a section on how to Identify the various Union Pictorial Definitives.

Otto was a Professional Philatelist, a keen researcher and Philatelic writer and was the editor of Southern Africa Philately, The Rhodesian Philatelist and The Runner Post (the journal of The Bechanaland Society).
