Southern Africa initiative was expanded
during the past year. There is now a seperate Bechuanaland
& Botswana website that may be accessed using
the appropriate links above. A new journal was launched
in September, being Southern
Africa Philately - details on
our Home page.
In October 2014 -
A Major restructure of the Entire Website was implemented.
During 2014, my intention of developing a
Collect Southern Africa theme
on the Internet has evolved and is steadily expanding.
During 2015 I hope to add many pages to this sector
and the likes of Basutoland, Bechuanaland
and Swaziland is
now on a seperate website that is my own Independent
website which compliments this site.
Input from others is either sporadic or slow and subsequently
the majority of material and images has been generated
by me and new material that appears is either taken
from my own Archives or collated from scratch.
Spink, Stanley Gibbons Auctions
and Murray Payne have been most cooperative
and sent me all their scans from their recent Auctions
that featured South African material.
I have Spink’s complete Bloom sale, Murray Payne’s
Auctions No’s 14, 15 and 16 and the SG Coote
collection of South Africa
Brian Trotter contributed his entire King’s
head material and all the foregoing promises a spectacular
Picture show of Union material.
Siegfried Mayr is keen to develop
a Voortrekker section and intial preparitions are
already in place
