At present the Society holds two postal auctions each year in April and October. A room auction of approximately 50 lots is also held at each General Meeting. While these are a very important source of revenue to the Society, individual members also benefit as these auctions are only open to members. The continuance of these auctions depends on the availability of material and all members are urged to take this into consideration when disposing of unwanted items.

In view of the heavy workload involved the role of Auction Secretary has been split into two.

Gerald Marriner is responsible for compiling and preparing the auction list. Please send any material you want included in the auction, along with a description, to him. If you wish to email him, please contact him on auctions.vendors@ciss1950.org.uk

Nick Stuart will deal with all other matters from this point onwards. Bids should be returned to him by email at auctions.bidders@ciss1950.org.uk or by post as indicated on the bid form.

Printed copies will be sent to members who receive a printed version of the Journal and Members who only receive an electronic copy of the Journal will receive their auction list by email.
