Celebrate Douglas Myall’s 90th Birthday


Douglas Myall, well-known to Machin collectors for his Complete Deegam Machin Handbook and numerous other contributions to the field, will reach his 90th birthday on December 17. The Machin Study Group of the West Toronto (Canada) Stamp Club is going to honor Myall by preparing a personalized postage stamp picturing Myall and a cacheted cover postmarked on December 17 with the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada’s “125 years of Canadian Philately” cancel. 

Covers are available from the Study Group at $2 each (Canadian dollars) and single picture postage stamps at $1 each, plus appropriate postage. The covers can be addressed and mailed directly to you (with additional postage as necessary to addresses outside Canada), or unaddressed and sent in a separate cover.

A very limited supply of stamps and covers will be available, so if you are interested, please reserve them soon. 

To reserve them, contact Vijay Vijayakumar at machincollector@gmail.com or Garfield Portch at garfield.portch@gmail.com. Be sure to indicate your country of residence so they can give you the proper postage costs.

P.S. A Myallstone was just reached with the publication of Deegam Report #100. (That's Douglas' term, not mine!)
