Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society

The year 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the first year of operation of the Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society following the amalgamation of the Germany & Colonies Stamp Club (established 1947) and the Stockton German Study Group (1960).


The G&CPS celebrated its inaugural year in 1964 with the first Germania Posta philatelic exhibition held in Stockton.


The Covid-19 situation is easing and most of the regional groups have restarted their programmes. However you should contact the organiser, or consult the website, before attending any meeting.
