We are sad to share the news of the passing of our President who died on Wednesday 15th February after a short illness.

Robin joined the BSRP in the early 1960’s and over the course of the 70’s held the offices of Treasurer, BJRP Editor and Librarian. As “Father of the Society” he was unanimously elected to the presidency at our last AGM. Robin was the author of more than 20 journal articles demonstrating his very broad interest in the whole Russian area and a particular enthusiasm for Latvia.

We are thankful for his significant contribution both to the Society and to Russian philately over many years.” Terry Page
