Roger B West is a well known philatelist and an acknowledged expert in the stamps of St Helena. He has written & published two handbooks on this subject - 1) Forgeries of the Perkins Bacon 6d Plate and 2) The Perkins Bacon 6d Plate. In 1994 he edited the handbook 'Madame Joseph Forged Postmarks' (Published by the Royal Philatelic Society) which has been widely acclaimed as one of the most important philatelic reference works. Roger has a number of displays which prove popular when shown to Societies all over the United Kingdom namely St Helena Forgeries, Tete-Beche, Dominica, Specimen Stamps and his light-hearted 'An Evening Wasted'. He recently joined the Internet Philatelic Dealers' Association (IPDA) where he is Director for GB & Europe. Outside of philately, Roger enjoys good music (mainly Jazz, Classical, Country and Easy Listening) and in recent years has taken up playing the keyboard. His other passions are model railways, wood-turning and cooking - Chinese cuisine being his forte.
