The aims of the Society are to draw together all those interested
in the stamps of the reign of King George VI, so that they might
pass on their knowledge to each other, record all that they know
for future generations and pursue joint studies of the stamps
issued so as to enlarge the body of philatelic knowledge for the
benefit of all.
There is still a great deal of research yet to
be carried out. As the years have progressed, members have expanded
into the field of postal history for the period where again
there is still much to be discovered and recorded.
In pursuit of these aims the society has regular
meetings where collections and items are displayed. There is
also an AGM once a year and an auction where society members
can sell and bid on lots consisting of quality stamps and covers
etc with a minimum reserve of £5.00 for each lot.
The Society issues a quarterly journal - GEOSIX
which has research, news and other information on the Society.
Society members have also published many papers and articles
on many aspects covering the stamp designs, printing and issues
of George VI philatelic material. Please see the publications
If you are interested in philately from this period
and would like to get involved and become a member then please
