Postal History and Aerophilatelic Group

About the Group

The group began life as the North of England GB Study Circle with George Kelvin as Chairman. The change was made in 1983 when members ran out of fresh GB material to show! The Aerophilatelic Group joined the Postal History group in 1998 when both memberships decreased and it was not considered worthwhile to hold separate meetings.
