1st Round: Dr [CENSORED: surname] began by saying that the collection had developed over the last eight years. He had brought along general material, rather than restricting the display to postal history, to make the evening of more general interest.

2nd Round: The second round was in similar vein and went from Junction (Carstairs) to the ZCF code for Crawford
