February

RSA Commemoratives
A new page added covering all commemoratives from 2011 to the end of 2016, I started this mamoth task a year ago and at last it is complete.

2016 News

RSA Commemoratives
Late September - Missing images (2001 - 2010) added
I have recently acquired 2011 to 2015 Commemorative Issues and will be adding them to the website in due course.

A major task is nearing completion being a review of all RSA Commemoratives. Scanning and cropping almost 400 sets of stamps has been a major undertaking and is currently almost complete from 1961 to 2010. It also includes all the Pictorial Booklets.
A range of RSA articles will appear in two journals Southern Africa Philately and The Springbok

RSA Booklets
- During the course of 2016 these will be arranged on a seperate page

RSA Definitives -
The initial task will be to display all the various Definitive sets

SWA QEII Issues -
I have started a page that will display the issues from 1953 Coronation to 1990 Flowers

Botswana
The country will celebrate fifty years of Independence in September 2016. Gibbons Stamp Monthly is running a series of articles, being a Review of fifty years of Stamps. In the April GSM Part I Covers the definitive Issues. Part II - July GSM covers the Commemoratives.
Part III August - Miniature Sheets. Part IV September - Booklets & Postage Dues

2015 News
The Collect Southern Africa initiative was expanded during the past year. There is now a seperate Bechuanaland & Botswana website that may be accessed using the appropriate links above. A new journal was launched in September, being Southern Africa Philately - details on our Home page.

In October 2014
- A Major restructure of the Entire Website was implemented. During 2014, my intention of developing a Collect Southern Africa theme on the Internet has evolved and is steadily expanding. During 2015 I hope to add many pages to this sector and the likes of Basutoland, Bechuanaland and Swaziland is now on a seperate website that is my own Independent website which compliments this site.

Input from others is either sporadic or slow and subsequently the majority of material and images has been generated by me and new material that appears is either taken from my own Archives or collated from scratch.

Spink, Stanley Gibbons Auctions and Murray Payne have been most cooperative and sent me all their scans from their recent Auctions that featured South African material.
I have Spink’s complete Bloom sale, Murray Payne’s Auctions No’s 14, 15 and 16 and the SG Coote collection of South Africa

Brian Trotter
contributed his entire King’s head material and all the foregoing promises a spectacular Picture show of Union material.

Siegfried Mayr is keen to develop a Voortrekker section and intial preparitions are already in place
