Book give-away

Murdoch Valley philatelist and founder of Peninsula Publishers and Janssen Stamps, Volker Janssen, has loved stamps since his childhood in Germany.

He is a member of the South African Philatelic Dealers Association (SAPDA) and the Royal Philatelic Society of Cape Town and has been the secretary of his home club, the Fish Hoek Philatelic Society, since 2006.
