Some ephemera from the Federation's early days

Hampshire Philatelic federation was established in 1969. Bulletin Number 1 published in April of 1970 contains an article by Francis Kiddle entitled "Foundation of HPF" and an Editorial by Tony Farmer. For posterity, editions 1 to 134 of the Bulletin are lodged in paper format at the Winchester Records Office.

The Editorial was reproduced in Bulletin No 130, January 2012, by the then Editor, Tom Fowler, and is shown below.
