Estimates are in Pounds Sterling do not include the 10% buyer's premium.

After the main listings you will find various information and instructions. This is followed by a sample bid form, and a copy of the the notes that appear on the reverse of our bid forms.

If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by phone, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

           SWITZERLAND 1941
           In 1941 Switzerland was in an interesting place. Having remained neutral during the First
              World War it managed to do likewise in the Second, though was constantly aware of the
              possibility of invasion, protecting itself through a balance of military strength and readiness
              and limited concessions to
Germany. 300,000 foreign nationals were interned there, and the
              Red Cross, headquartered in
Geneva, carried out important rles internationally.
              Stamp issues carried on without much apparent change or interruption (though notably prolific
              in 1941), but there were many effects on the mail services; acting as a clearing house for
              some mail between beligerant nations, seeing censorship introduced on most of the mail in
              and out of the country, providing postal services for refugees and interned foreign service
              personnel, and so on.
              The following collection was formed in
Switzerland and gives a cross-section of Swiss
              philately seen through the single year of 1941. The collection attained vermeil awards at

A National Anthem for
Scotland
Musician Bob Murray has been following the topic of possible Scottish National Anthems for 25 years. Join him in the Storytelling Court to hear his observations and at least eight of the songs which are seen as potential candidates for Scotland's Anthem. He'll try to define what an anthem needs to be, highlight the positive and the negative in each of the candidates, and discuss how Scotland
might progress to a decision. Do we need to make a choice? If so, how do we do it?
