The supplement updates the original book to show additional material present when it won the Best Aerophilatelic Exhibit Award at the London 2010 International Exhibition. Black & white edition. Spiral, 38 pp. Peter Motson’s award winning exhibit, Newfoundland Airmail Stamps and Air Mail Flights: 1918-1949, was published as BNAPS Exhibit Series Book No. 54 in April 2009. The exhibit was first shown in 2004 and attained a Large Vermeil award in London, England. Peter’s study of North Atlantic airmails was rewarded in 2005 with the British Aerophilatelic Federation ‘Medal for Research’. In 2006, the exhibit won the coveted British Aero Philatelic Club Trophy in addition to a Gold medal. At BNAPEX 2008 NOVAPEX in Halifax, Nova Scotia the exhibit again received a Gold medal, as well as the Meyerson Award for ‘Best Exhibit from a Province of Canada before Confederation’. Not content to rest on his laurels, Peter then began to upgrade the exhibit for presentation at the London 2010 International Exhibition. His efforts were rewarded when it received not only a Large Gold but also the Best of Class Award for Aerophilately. To progress from a national level Gold to the London 2010 level is a major achievement. For this reason BNAPS decided to prepare this supplement to the 2009 book to illustrate the significant changes between it and the material presented at London 2010.
