Grandfather Alan Middleton joined the society in 1969 and son Mark and grandson Padraig joined earlier this year in 2021.
Alan’s interests in phillumeny are mainly pre World War Two labels and British Bookmatches, and he enjoys researching the history of labels. He has written a number of books and articles about the match manufacturers in the North of England.
On the other hand Mark and Padraig are interested in the designs and artwork of matchbox labels.
