Crikey, afeht, lighten up a bit, eh? Paolo comments on Paul's cheap shot at Italy and you find that a pretext to label Jim a Nazi? So he has a different outlook to you. Get over it.
David and Linda - many thanks for the comments and help. I've seen David George's signature next to that of Nelson Eustis on a 1969 Burma Ross Smith anniversary cover (Eustis carried these on the flight from Burma and put them into the mail at Singapore), so I think he may have been one of the flight organisers/committee or whatever. So the Leski suggestion sounds good - thanks.
Nelson Eustis tried to lick Burma into philatelic shape as a consultant around 1970-71, but he didn't get far. They set up a "State Philatelic Advisory Board" which lasted for two issues, he managed to get a bunch of trivial Burma-related articles into Linn's, and they issued, at his suggestion, a single miniature sheet (with printed perforations, oddly) but on a deadly dull political theme. Thankfully, his advice to issue lots of brightly coloured topicals was turned down by the killjoy generals. In 1999 he wrote up his recollections of his days in Burma for "Australasian Stamps" - very interesting. In 1996 he was in Burma on some numismatic contract, and shared a fax machine with Leo Nichols, a businessman who acted as honorary consul for Norway and other countries. Nichols was later arrested for illegal possession of a fax machine(!) and died in Insein prison. That's Burma for you.
Interesting comments on Gee. I have in my keeping, among the papers of the late Gerald Davis, what look like direct strikes of some of the dies illustrated, rather blotchily, in the Robson Lowe booklet, Burma peacocks included. His dies, or close imitations of them, are about the most frequent peacock forgeries encountered, and some of them are tricky. I think Paul has one or two, judging by that recent link. So hey, I'm a Gee fan on that account alone. Just waiting for news of his passing so I can write him up in my "Who WAS Who of Burma Philately" (ongoing project).
Thanks, all, Richard W.
