1970 Sarawak Exhibition

1970 Sarawak Philatelic Society First Postage Stamp Exhibition

Malaysia has many individual philatelic society which actively promotes stamp collecting within a particular state or area. The society which I know off are Philatelic Society of Malaysia or PSM (formally known as Selangor Stamp Society), Penang Philatelic Society, Sarawak Philatelic Society, Perak Philatelic and Numismatic Society etc. Some of these philatelic society may not be even exist anymore. However, the commemorative exhibition covers issued by them for stamp exhibition has always been my interest in stamp collecting.

The cover shown above are to commemorate the first philatelic exhibition by the Sarawak Philatelic Society. This exhibition was held from 30th May to 1st June in 1970 (3 days) at Fuchou Associations Sibu.

I have been trying to get more information about this society online but in vain. Any of the readers who are a members or have knowledge about this philatelic society are welcome to share it with me.

However, I do come across a interesting website about Sarawak stamps at http://sarawakstamps.com/default.aspx.

我們住在東馬砂勞越的郵友也都只是聽說有這個Sarawak Philatelic Society在古晉,可惜的是郤沒有人真正對它有認識,也沒聽說有任何的集郵活動在砂勞越各地推展.

如果连本地人都没有听过,那我们这些外地人就更闻所未闻了。

不过Sarawak Philatelic Society应该真的没那么活跃。除了这个封外,我在没有其他的了。

非常意外的看到有關 SPS 的問題, 很高興
的是我曾經是這個郵會的會員 (1970年),
因當時學業關係也就暫時脫離了集郵活動,
如果仍找的到當年的郵會月刊(A4, 打字
油印本), 將提供給大家閱讀.

找出了SPS 於1970年發出的學生會員證,
這張保存良好的會員證, 還真是珍貴,
SPS是在詩巫Sibu, 不是古晉.

哈哈!還真是搞不懂,SPS竟然是在詩巫,而不是如我之前所說的在古晋.現在問題是,這個社團是否還在運作中否?而宣傳方面的工作怎麼還是那麼的弱?只掛個名郤沒人真正知道它是否還存在,實在太可惜了!
