Members' Exhibits

Philippe Orsetti has suggested the inclusion of a new section on this website for
members to share displays of their exhibits. A working prototype has now been prepared
using Philippe's award winning exhibit on 'Hong Kong Under Japanese Occupation (1941-1945)'.
It can be viewed here

More displays or presentations are required to help with the evaluation of the prototype. If you can help with this or wish to provide feedback then please contact

Our History
The Hong Kong Study Circle was founded in 1951 to record and circulate information on the philatelic and postal history of Hong Kong and the Treaty Ports. It is UK-based and regular meetings are held in London. Provincial meetings are also held from time to time. Overseas meetings are a feature as well and are arranged as opportunities arise.

Membership is world-wide and is linked by the Journal plus the Newsletter, which are the medium for reporting, exchanging and recording information, normally submitted by members. The Journal has been published continuously since 1951 and is issued quarterly free to members.

From time to time specialized handbooks are published by the HKSC, the most recent being two volumes, Hong Kong Airmails 1924-41 (by Duncan Crewe), and Hong Kong Airmails 1945-95 (by Nick Halewood). Click here for more information.
