Displays by Royal Belgian Academy
Henk Slabbinck FRPSL, President of the Royal Belgian Academy of Philately, receives a chocolate Mini from Patrick Maselis RDP FRPSL, President of The Royal Philatelic Society, as a token of thanks for displays given to the Society.
No fewer than 27 members of the Royal Belgian Academy of Philately gave displays to the members of The Royal Philatelic Society London on 4 April. The outstanding material on show covered a wide range of countries: not only Belgium and Belgian Congo, but also notably France, Germany and Great Britain.
The team from the Academy, led by its President, Henk Slabbinck FRPSL, was welcomed by Patrick Maselis RDP FRPSL, President of the ‘Royal’, himself a past President of the Academy.
In giving the Vote of Thanks, Mark Bailey FRPSL could not find sufficient superlatives to describe the material shown, thanking everyone for the ‘extraordinary displays, with so much wonderful, remarkable and diverse range of material’.
