Hell every one
my name is ray LLoyd and i class myself as a postal historian,
sounds a bit posher than a stamp collector.
My main passion is the island of Tristan da Cunha in the south Atlantic and its visiting ships. However 3 years ago i purchased some
illustrated envelopes by Captain Bryan Hill and noticed they had a GBLA cachet on them. Did some research and discovered what the GBLA was and got very interested in the postal history side.Managed to buy a few letters and stamped envelopes and and capt. Bryan's book and so began to form a collection. Have been very interested in the comments and nostaga on this Forum so please keep them coming.
If anyone has anything they would like to sell and who would treasure them please let me know
Kind Regards

Welcome to SN. So was GBLA the callsign of Capt. Hill's ship or what?
