Volume 46#22

February 15 – February 28, 2022

Elected to sign the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists in March 2020, Canadian philatelist Charles Verge will finally add his name to the iconic roll this February after two years of postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020, 2021, 2022 RDP honourees to sign iconic roll in February

The 2020, 2021 and 2022 honourees are slated to add their names to the iconic RDP, philately’s highest honour, on Feb. 21 at 5:30 p.m. (GMT). The signing ceremony, to be held at the Royal Philatelic Society London (RPSL) headquarters in England, will take place during the London 2022 international philatelic exhibition and will mark the 101st anniversary of the RDP’s establishment.
