PORTUGAL IN WORLD WAR I : The Tom Poynton Collection

PORTUGAL IN WORLD WAR I
Tom Poynton, one of our long-time members, died last year and we have recently learnt that part of his collection, entitled ‘Portugal in WWI’, will be coming up for auction next week on the 15th (i.e. 15 March, 2017) at Cavendish Auctions in the UK.
The auctioneers have split it into about 50 lots all numbered in the 600 s. Both Portugal and the Colonies are well-represented.

2017 AGM AUCTION

I most sincerely apologise for breaking with a long-time tradition, but I regret that the planned-for auction later this month at the AGM in Porto will not now take place.

This year I have had increased mobility problems and this has necessitated a planned operation to free a nerve in my back which in turn has restricted my traveling.

I am planning to re-create the auction on-line in mid-year and will be contacting all those who have given me items to sell, to gain their approval for this. Notice will be given both in the magazine and on this website as and when a date is known.

I hope that the AGM is a massive success and hope to see everyone at Midpex in July.

Best wishes,

– Roger Lawson
