🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a pair of stamps and a miniature sheet on 7 September 2017 as a Joint issue with Indonesia. The subject of the issue is Corals of the two countries which are celebrating the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between them. The stamps were designed by Alynn Teo and lithographed by Secura Singapore and perforated 13. This is an attractive and modestly priced issue. Rating:- *****.
🇲🇺 Mauritius Post issued a single stamp on 1 August 2017 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the country's police force. Rating:- **.
The remaining issues in Mauritius Post's planned new issue programme for 2017 are:-
September - Centenary of the late Serge Constantine - 1 stamp
Centenary of Lions International and 50th year of Lions' presence in Mauritius - 1 stamp
October - Sea shells of Mauritius - 4 stamps
November - The Chagos Islands, otherwise known as British Indian Ocean Territory but claimed by Mauritius, and islets of The Republic of Mauritius - 3 stamps.
🇧🇩 I depict below the remaining stamps not yet shown here of the set of 71 stamps issued by Bangladesh Post which I mentioned in Blog 1076 and which are on the subject of "War Crimes in Bangladesh by Pakistan Army and their Collaborators 1971". A number of these have designs which are as upsetting and disturbing as some of those featured in Blog 1076. Rating:- *****.
