It is with the greatest regret that we have to announce
the sudden death of Brian Hudson on 8th December 1998.
For the past five years he very bravely endured the
effects and treatment of kidney failure. He had two transplants, the second of
which appeared to be a complete success and he had every expectation of full
recovery. When I last visited him, five days before his death, he was extremely
cheerful, completely optimistic for his future and full of life.
He was a past President of
the BCSC, our General Sales Secretary, our Auctioneer and a member of our Expert Committee. His death is a bitter blow to the
His great philatelic interests were the Mols stamps and
the cancellations of the 1886-1960 Period. He was expert in both areas and was
always very ready to share his knowledge with others.
He and his wife graciously extended their hospitality
to us to hold study circle meetings in their home on several occasions and then
entertained us royally.
