Malaya Study Group

The Malaya Study Group is the specialist society for collectors of the stamps, postal stationery and postal history of the states of Peninsular Malaysia plus territories formerly administered by the Straits Settlements and overprinted Straits Settlements stamps used in the British Post Office in Bangkok.

They can be found here:


The Cinderella Stamp Club

Founded in 1959 and based in the UK, the Cinderella Stamp Club is an association of philatelists, amateur and professional, whose interests lie in local stamps, telegraph stamps, railway stamps, revenues, fiscals, forgeries, bogus and phantom issues, Christmas, Red Cross, TB and other charity seals, registration labels, advertisement and exhibition labels and many other items — all of which are the so-called “Cinderellas of Philately”.


Helgoland The Cuxhaven Railway Influence

In 1881 the railway from Cuxhaven to Harburg was completed. This improved links for Cuxhaven with Harburg, Hanover and Bremen. Harburg was already connected via a railway link to Hamburg. The steamer services then dropped mail off at Cuxhaven for onward delivery to Hamburg.


Helgoland The Early Hamburg Influence

The Early Hamburg Influence on Helgoland Postal System

In 1859 Hamburg was issued with its own stamps and these could be used to pre-pay mail coming from Helgoland up to the introduction of the first Helgoland issues in 1867. Only three Hamburg values are currently known to have been used to pre-pay Helgoland mail.
