 ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ธ The postal service of South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands will issue a single £3.50 stamp on 20 November 2019 to commemorate the Centenary of the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge. The stamp which depicts Ernest Shackleton was designed by Bee Design and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5 x 13.
 Thanks to Juliet Warner of Pobjoy Stamps for information about this issue.


๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Below are depicted some of the items from the upcoming Christmas set from An Post, the postal service of the Republic Of Ireland. The issue is made up of 4 x €1 and 2 x €1.70 in a se-tenant pair. The self-adhesive stamps will be sold in booklets of 5 or 20. The issue was designed by Alan Dunne using ‘paper craft’ illustrations and lithographed by Enschedรฉ and perforated 13.
  There is also an ‘Elf on the shelf’ stamp sold in Booklets Of 10.
  Regrettably I do not find this to be a particularly appealing set. Rating:- **.
