France in the next Royal London philatelic season

I'm back from holidays through Wales, London and Paris and pleased to read in the mail the 2016-2017 program of the Royal Philatelic Society London.

On the French philatelic side, the main event will happen on the afternoon of Thursday November 24thAcadémie de philatélie, whose president Robert Abensur just applied to RPSL membership.
French philately and postal history in the Small Library at RPSL's 41 Devonshire Place: this is the part directly available to members and visitors to study. Other volumes are available on demand and found on the RPSL Catalogue. The current magazines and journals are in the Large Library with tea and cookies (picture under Creative Commons licence by-nc-sa 3.0 fr).
On Thursday September 29, Ron Brown will propose a conference on the Channel Islands and islanders during the German occupation 1940-1945: from the postal service in those isles to the mail to and from deported inhabitants in camps in France and Germany.

Rest of the program in another (long?) article on the blog in French because next year the Society will take again a tour of the whole world and times of the past centuries. First example in the summer issue of The London Philatelist: Markand Dave and P.S. Dixit look at the Indian settlements' archives and mail of the Danish East India Company...

Complement on Wednesday 26 October 2016:
The Académie de philatélie published the program of the collective exhibition its French members and foreign correspondents will propose at the RPSL on November 24th.
