Autumn Stampex 2019

Yugoslavia Study Group

will be holding a meeting at

Autumn Stampex

Saturday 14th September 2019

(10:00 – 12:00 Room F)

Business Design Centre, Islington, London N1 0QH

You are invited to bring two frames of material (10 – 12 sheets per frame). Please note that the Stampex handbook you are given at the entrance does not list our meeting but it is definitely on!


Here we include a small selection of links to useful resources and relevant societies and organisations. Inclusion of a link should not be interpreted as an endorsement but we hope that these will be useful for our members and others interested in philately of former Yugoslavian territories.

ArGe-YU is one of Germany’s largest and most strongly growing philatelic organizations. It was founded in 1975 in the Rhineland and in 2015 celebrated its 40th anniversary.

Monograph 7 fron coverOur quarterly A4-sized Journal, Jugopošta, is published in March, June, September and December. Each issue is produced on paper covering a variety of subjects and is distributed free to members. However, in some years where suitable material is available, we will produce a single-subject monograph to replace one of those issues. In that event, the monograph will be published on CD (at no extra cost to members) on paper (at an extra cost).

Members will be informed before annual subscriptions become due of the intention to publish a monograph in the forthcoming year.

Back-copies of Jugopošta and monographs are available. See ‘Literature’ for more details.

An index of articles published in Jugopošta, up to and including Number 86, can be downloaded from here.

Jugopošta was awarded Silver at the Croydon 2007 national exhibition.

Jugopošta is sent by surface mail to overseas, non-Europe based members unless additional funds are received for airmail postage (minimum £6). Payment may be made by sterling cheques drawn on a UK bank (made payable to Yugoslavia Study Group), by PayPal or in cash.
