Gustaf Douglas (1938-2023)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of Gustaf Douglas RDP FRPSL on 3 May 2023.
A Swedish aristocrat and businessman, he will be remembered as the Head Patron of Stockholmia 2019 and the owner of the only known example of the Treskilling Yellow he acquired in 2013. In 2015 he was awarded the Tilleard Medal by the Royal Philatelic Society London and the Strandell Medal by the Swedish Philatelic Federation. In 2018 he was invited to sign the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists.
We send our condolences to his family.
