Dear Member of the Borneo Philatelic Society,

Provided you have received the December Journal you will know that is the new name for the Sarawak Specialists' Society from the 1st January 2023. I do hope you approve.

It has been a stressful year for many of us so I thought it would be a nice idea to send a Christmas and New Year’s card (see below). It dates back to the formative years of Malaysia, the period of Confrontation with Indonesia. Please do, I think you will find it a lot more interesting than a plump robin or a snow man or the SE Asian equivalent (what would that be?). By the way I am not Don, but I would very much like to know about the insignia on the front of the card, particularly the bird and the black cat.

Very best wishes for Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year (whenever you celebrate it).
