Sunday Stamps 26: the British Army

Good to see Sunday Stamps back again this week after a week off. Interesting to see that this week's theme was inspired because of all the national holidays in July - here in the UK we don't have any at all in July, although we did have plenty in April this year because of the Royal Wedding. So, a belated Happy 4th July to all my US friends. In terms of patriotic stamps I was a bit spolit for choice as I think almost all of our stamps have the Queen on them in some form or other, but after looking through my First Day Cover collection I came across this one from 1983. It shows various regiments of the British Army throughout the ages. The Parachute Regiment, the Irish Guards, the Royal Green Jackets, the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and the Royal Scots.

  1. Wouldn't it be nice to have those Royal Wedding stamps.

  2. Those stamps make me think of toy soldiers.

  3. Interesting: a series with different denominations. In the USA a series would all have the same value, for example 44 cents.
    thanks for participating!

  4. It was a nice series. I used to have the matching PHQ cards but I think I've used them all.
