Tonight our special guest is Nick Kerridge who will present to us on the Postal history of the treaty port of Weihaiwai ( 威 海 衞 ) in northeastern China.

His talk begins with the Japanese occupation period from 1895 to 1898, followed by the British occupation of Weihaiwei between 1898 to 1930. 

Nick will have on-display neat philatelic and postal history items pertaining to the early private courier services and to the beginnings of the British Post Office in this treaty port.

Open to members and visitors.
