LEMANEX 1978 was a Swiss National Philatelic Exhibition at Lausanne in Switzerland from 26th May to 4th June, 1978.
A Sunday afternoon, special boat excursion across the lake to Thonon in France gave rise to conviviality and to a host of special cachets, as well as to a special French cancellation from Thonon honouring Lemanex. The Cover on display with the lovely cachet and the special cancellation, is this very cover from Thonon, issued on 28th May 1978. Thank you Dear Maria for this memorable cover, with the nice stamp honouring Charles Lindbergh.
