Douglas Myall


In my last post, "Phosphor Shifts" we mentioned Douglas Myall and his award winning publication The Complete Deegam Machin Handbook.


It may be of interest to inform you that Douglas actually reads this blog. Although he has not left any comments on site to date, he has informed me by email that he finds the site " exceptionally interesting", so much so he has linked to us from his own website.


I will not go into to much detail about his site as some time ago Larry wrote a piece regarding The new Deegam website.


I and many other specialist collectors rate Douglas's work very highly and I can say without any doubt his hand book is always the first place that I go to for research. I am also pleased to now add a reciprocal link from the links section of this site.


Deegam publications are written by Myall who has been studying and writing about Machins for more than 40 years. He was a founder and life member of the GB Decimal Stamp Book Study Circle and the British Decimal Stamps Study Circle, now merged into the Modern British Philatelic Circle. He has written a regular column in Royal Mail's British Philatelic Bulletin for many years and has been voted favourite author in their reader poll for the last 11 years.
If you or anyone you know have a Machin orientated web site and would like to exchange links with us please email me with the URL.
