Bruce Marshall Plate – Hawkes Bay Competition
We now have a competition in the Hawkes Bay. It is a Dalton plate donated by Faith Marshall wife of the late Bruce Marshall who won the plate at some stage. We do not have the details, so if anyone can fill us in on this we would be happy to hear from them.
The plate is now encased in a sturdy wooden frame with a suitable plaque. It is to be contested by the Hawkes Bay Philatelic Society and the Hastings Stamp Collectors Club on an annual basis each July.
A society competition held once a year on any topic up to four pages.
