BELGIAN CONGO STUDY CIRCLE (B.C.S.C.)
The Study Circle was founded as a British society in 1951/2 but its membership has expanded and is now international with particular strength from membership in Belgium, USA and the U.K. All collectors of Belgian Congo, Ruanda-Urundi, their Postal History and subsequent States are welcome. The present membership ranges from specialists in particular fields to those whose present ambition is very modest.
