Sunday Stamps 56 - Southern Rhodesia

Very glad this week's Sunday Stamps is Anything You Wish as work this week has been absolutely manic and has taken away all of my creative thought. These stamps are a block of 6 green/brown 2d Southern Rhodesia stamps from 1943 commemorating 50 years of the province of Matabeleland. One of Matabeleand's claim to fame is that it was the birthplace of scouting, where Robert Baden-Powell met Frederick Russell Burnham.
