      Auction Results
      Secretary's Report
      St. Helena Stories
      Treasurer's Report

      A.L. Innes, the St. Helena photographer, producing the first picture postcards of the island in a time when thousands of Boer War prisoners came to the island where a century before Napoleon was "imprisoned".

      In the second article the question was arised:
      a cover offered on eBay - fake or rariety? - an interesting story of a Reverend producing gems of the Tristan da Cunha philately when he left the island 1929.

      Members of the St. Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Philatelic Society - SHATPS - receive the South Atlantic Chronicle four times a year.

      New issues of Tristan da Cunha you are pictured on the society's home page www.shatps.org beside other useful information including a Slide Show introducing the 3 islands with 50 photos/scans.

      Have fun
