Happy Birthday Douglas

I would like to take this opportunity to wish on behalf of all Machin collectors, A Happy Birthday to Mr Machin Man himself. Douglas Myall author of Deegam publications.

Above Douglas Myall left of the picture with Machinites Albert Farrugia and Larry Rosenblum when they met at stampshow 2000. Douglas, author of the Deegam Handbook has been writing about Machins for more than 40 years. He is a founder and life member of the GB Decimal Stamp Book Study Circle and the British Decimal Stamps Study Circle, which has now merged into the Modern British Philatelic Circle.

According to my information, Douglas was born in Essex, England in 1922, this means that Douglas has spent nearly half his life writing and cataloguing The Machin Stamp. He will also celebrate (if I have the birth date correct) being 86 years young on 17th December this year.

From all Machin collectors and everyone at MachinmaniaBlogspot

Many Happy Returns Of The Day
