Malaysia Stamps - Penang Free School Bicentenary - October 21, 2016 Issue

An awesome issue as these stamps commemorate the 200th Anniversary of my secondary school alma mater Penang Free School, the oldest English school in Southeast Asia started in 1816. There was a 150th Anniversary issue by Pos Malaysia too back in 1966. I went to Penang Free School to get this special cancellation as well as the Penang Free School chop and the special cover and cancellation by Penang Philatelic Society in conjunction with this issue and the 3 days Stamp Exhibition and Fair show Oct 21-23, 2016 at the Star Pitt Street, Penang showing Dr Wu Lien Teh, a famous son of Penang Free School.
