1126. 🇮🇴 BIOT Commemorates Women's Naval Service Centenary.



 🇮🇴 The postal service of the British Indian Ocean Territory will issue 6 stamps (as 3 se-tenant pairs) on 28 November 2017 to commemorate the Centenary of the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS). This is a highly appropriate issue for the territory to release as it serves almost entirely as a giant naval base. A very interesting and excellent issue. Rating:- *****.
