Indian Naval Philately Pavilion

May 19, 2018 - A proud moment for philatelists

Indian Naval Philately Pavilion - a permanent Naval Philatelic Pavilion at INS Valsura (Electrical Training Establishment of Indian Navy), in Jamnagar, Gujarat inaugurated by Mr. D.H.Rao.

Mr. D.H.Rao / D. Hemchandra Rao, 77, is President of Naval Philatelic Society, India; former president of SIPA (South India Philatelists Association), Chennai; and former president of Madras Coin Society; naval historian, and philatelist.

He donated his entire philatelic collection on Indian Navy theme, including many with autographs.

As myself a ship / Navy theme collector, I feel very proud that Mr. Rao's collection found a right and prestigious place in the country.
