Well, you already know the images (https://myfdc.me/2016/09/08/strong-and-faithful/), so I guess the price list of all the available products will be useful. A mobile post office (Post on Wheels) will be sent to the school to sell and postmark the First Day Covers, very much like 50 years ago! SODA holders, watch out for a surprise (unless there is a change…).
The products will be sold in all states on 21 October 2016 except Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor. The products will be sold in Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor on 23 October 2016 (Sunday). Penang will be flooded by folks from Kedah on 21 October 2016 since Friday is a holiday for Kedahans.
Coincidentally there is a Stamp and Exhibition Fair organised by the Penang Philatelic Society in the old Star Building along Pitt Street: https://www.facebook.com/TheStarPittStreet/
This is not an official event of the school’s celebration. However, the society will be issuing an exhibition cover featuring Dr Wu Lien Teh (http://wulientehsociety.org/), the famous plague fighter and an Old Free, and an image of the second location of the Penang Free School. It will make a good match for the issue.
Do you know where is the second location of the Penang Free School?
The fair runs from 21 – 23 October 2016 from 9:00 am to 06:00 pm.
Right, I guess many Old Frees will be heading “home”. Have a safe journey.
