I’ve started working through my grandfather’s collection about two years ago; I had found it in a very large suitcase and wondered why we were storing it as our house is small. I opened it up and found them forgotten, bending and in need of tender love and care. I thought I would try to make him proud if he could. I spent all of my free time discovering everything this suitcase held: all the tools I needed, information, albums and singles thrown about and the original Philatelic Service Oder Statements, accompanying the majority of just the 1960 – 1999 collection. That is the last thing I remember.. I still put all my free time towards it, philately has become all-consuming because the more I learn, the less I know.
