David took us on the journey of the postal history of Norfolk Island
  • from its beginnings as an adjunct to the penal settlement in Australia in 1788,
  • through the relocation of the Pitcairn Islanders in 1856,
  • to its administration as a British Colony and an Australian Territory. 
Included were:
  • censored and New Zealand Expeditionary Force mail from World War II,
  • early flight covers,
  • the introduction of decimalization in 1966 and
  • the unique ‘local’ mail. 
The highly-praised presentation focused on the years prior to 1980.   Catch the recorded virtual meeting here.
