Following the sale of the Royal Philatelic Society London’s building at 41 Devonshire Place, London it was decided to seek new premises for our Society’s meetings. I am pleased to inform members that we have secured the use of rooms at the Union Jack Club, Sandell Street, London, SE1 8UJ, just a short walk from Waterloo Station. The club is run for all current and ex-service non-commissioned personnel from the three armed forces, and it offers excellent restaurant and bar facilities at reasonable prices too. I will issue details and further instructions regarding meetings in the near future, but the first meeting at the Union Jack Club will be on Saturday, 10th February 2018.
