The Museum & National Trust is extremely grateful to everyone who helped to build the collection. Particular thanks must go to Stefan Heijtz, without whom none of this would have happened.
Stefan thought very highly of Nutt Cartmell and explained: "The collection had been formed in the spirit and memory of Nutt... He was a great collector and a fantastic personality.
Although building the collection was a group effort, Stefan pointed out that the it would not have been possible to complete the collection without the efforts of two donors in particular - Dr. John Henshall (a FIPSG member) of Herefordshire helped with many of the scarce and valuable stamps, and stamp dealers Stanley Gibbons Ltd in London very kindly filled the remaining two gaps in the collection, and donated the individually two most valuable stamps, the 1928 2 1/2D on 2d provisional and the 1933 £1.
Thanks also go to all the other individuals who generously contributed to this project:
