November 2019 Club Meeting notes

Rochdale Philatelic Society,12th November 2019 Press Release


Our guest speaker, Max Smith is a philatelic specialist on 19th. century India. Max detailed the time-line of the 1847 siege of Delhi during the Indian mutiny.

His talk was supported by original envelopes and letters, written by the key players in this drama. This siege was pivotal and successful. Should it have failed then India would have been lost to the British Empire.

Next month’s meeting will be members displays, followed by our Christmas pie and pea supper. New people are always welcome at the meetings which are held at the Rochdale Unitarian Church on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm, or alternatively telephone Neil on 01706 665698. or email
