Bulletin "Het Noorderlicht"
In the creation year of our society 1964, the first bulletin "Het Noorderlicht" no. 1 also emerged. Since then the over 200 quarterlies have been made.
"Het Noorderlicht" means "Northern Lights" (Aurora Borealis).
This is a logical chosen name. The bulletin brings light i.e. brings knowledge and shares information from member to member. Ofcourse this is also a natural phenomenon in the Scandinavian hemisphere.
In over 40 years our members produced a great number of articles (in Dutch) in our quarterly. The articles are written by members and ment for other members but also for the general philatelic public.
Various aspects of Scandinavian Philately are brought to light. Membership of our our society will suffice to receive our quarterly, alle news and background information as well as descriptions of new literature on the collecting field.
