Taunton Stamp Club

THE first stamp club meeting of the New Year was opened by the club chairman Mr Nigel Cox who extended a very warm greetings to the 16 members attending, the subject of the evening`s meeting was a members display of any subject depicting a “World of War” theme.

The vast amount and variation of material on display and the information disseminated by the club members Messrs Charney, Catley, Trathen, Mark, Sanders and Cowlin was very impressive and of great interest to all members present.

The material on display covered a wide array of items, some of which are quite exceptional ranging from hand out leaflets, postcards, cartoons, product labels to postage stamps and registered parcel labels, all of which were used to carry a propaganda message in some form or other.

Meetings are held every two weeks usually the first and third Monday of each month. The meeting venue is at Kilkenny Court, Clifton Terrace, Taunton, TA2 7QL. A full list of all the activities can be obtained from www.tauntonstampclub.co.uk.
