Hello. I’m Richard Warren and I’ve been collecting Burma and Myanmar stamps, covers and other stuff for the last twenty plus years. My favourite periods are the Japanese Occupation, the British military administration of 1945 and everything post Independence from 1948 to now. But I’m not fussy. I don’t spend vast amounts, but I like to study what I acquire. For the last thirteen years I’ve edited The Burma Fantail, the quarterly journal of the Burma (Myanmar) Philatelic Study Circle (international but UK based), the successor to Alan Meech’s The Burma Peacock, which ran from 1979 to 2000. I’m not a dealer, though I put the odd item on eBay, and I do some occasional informal expertising of peacock overprints for a well known dealership (in return for a donation to the study circle).
For now, this blog will be just for bits and pieces, notes or queries, me thinking aloud. I hope you find something interesting or useful here.
