FOR the March meeting, the chairman welcomed new members and guests.
She then welcomed Dane Garrod, a social historian using postal history as a means to tell a story.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Art and of the Royal Philatelic Society London.
As a collector of many things, he chanced upon a very old letter and decided to follow up the history of the people mentioned in it.
Having read the letter, he decided to give his talk the title “Your very loving Madeline” as it turned out to be a love letter.
