Past Events - 02

 

Issued—21/04/2016 - PHR Issue 66

April 21 2016, the Principality of Hutt River celebrates its 46th year of Independence. What better time to release the next in the promised series commemorating many “Past Events” experienced by HRH Prince Leonard and the Principality of Hutt River in the short but hectic life of this small country.

This Postage Stamp issue is titled “Past Events—02”, the second issue in the series.

In 1983 (17th-19th October 1983) HRH Prince Leonard was invited to visit the City of Gladstone in the Australian State of Queensland (Qld) and in
particular to attend formal and informal functions as a guest of the Lions Club of Port Curtis (Qld)
.
There were many highlights of this visit, some of which included an official tree planting by HRH Prince Leonard
at Lions Park, a Harbour Cruise, formal Civic Reception & Dinner held in the Gladstone Bowling Club with many dignitaries and guests some of whom were the then Mayor of Gladstone,  the late Ald Col Brown and Carmel Brown ,
the State President of Lions Clubs Mr Don Bryson, Councillor the late Mr Don and Mrs Allison Cameron Chairman of the then Calliope Shire Council (Qld).
There was also an official 'meet and greet' followed by a dinner with the Lions Club of Port Curtis (Qld).


 HRH Prince Leonard fondly remembers this visit still today, he enjoyed the functions and camaraderie at the time, as well as the opportunity that presented itself to
meet up with many of the PHR's senior Military Officers, their families and friends who resided in that part of the world, so distant from the Principality. This stamp issue in it's making has bought many of those fond memories back to HRH who is happy to have the time remembered by the issuing of this set of stamps.

 Good friendships were once again both formed and strengthened as a result of this tour, with many of the people of that time still in contact with the Principality today.
