PROGRAM ZOOM MEETING 12 SEPTEMBER 7.30 BST

1. Neil Ritchie – Welcome

2. Ivo Steijn – Russian mail abroad before the UPU: stranger and stranger

‘the further back you go, the more unfamiliar Russian mail abroad gets as we lose more and more familiar features’

Ivo Steijn is a regular contributor to our Zoom meetings and his professional and informative presentations have been very well received. Ivo works as a director for a bank in California and lives in Los Angeles. His collecting interests include Crimean postmarks, Siberian postal history of the Civil War period, and various post-Soviet states like Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Turkmenistan. He has been a BSRP member since the late 19th century (only a slight exaggeration!) and has fond memories of the meetings at the Union Jack Club, back when he still lived in the Netherlands.

3. Neil Ritchie – The second half of the meeting will be open to all members and allows for the opportunity to show some single items that you may not be able to show otherwise. It’s entitled “Items I know something about but maybe someone knows more”
