wonderful, the new website laugh.gif . I think, we are up to date with it now. Hope, that many members will participate.

I want to start with a request:
To prepare an article in The Upland GOOSE about the philatelic site of OPERATION KEYHOLE (the recapture of Thule/South Sandwich Islands) I need your help.
I need pictures/scans of covers of the following ships between 15 JUNE 1982 - 24 JUNE 1982:

HMS Endurance
HMS Yarmouth
Regent (supply ship)
Salvageman (tug)
Olmeda (tanker),
also a cover from 42 Commando RM (M-Company)
of the same time,
a cover from Corbeta Uruguay, the Artentine station on S. Thule of 1982.

But - if such an arcticle was published in recent years, please tell me volume & no of the Upland Goose.
Please look into your collection - and if you find a cover please send me a scan. Thank you very much!!
