Stamp of approval
Devon mason Trevor Fray has had an exhibition of his masonic stamp collection displayed at a public library in Plymouth. Trevor, president of the Masonic Philatelic Club, is a member of St John’s Lodge, No. 70, Plymouth, and began collecting stamps 65 years ago, taking up the specialised subject of masonic philately in 1975.
Trevor has shown his masonic stamp collection to numerous philatelic societies and lodges and points out that many countries have issued masonic commemorative stamps – and that more than one thousand individuals who were Freemasons have been depicted on postage stamps.
