1128. 🇬🇮🇫🇯🇰🇾 Gibraltar Bats, Fiji's Dunes And A Cayman Christmas.

  🇬🇮 The Royal Gibraltar Post Office will issue a set of 4 attractive stamps on 30 November 2017 on the subject of Bats of Gibraltar and as a World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) issue. The artwork used in the designs is by the excellent Jonathan Pointer and as usual Stephen Perera claims the credit for the stamp's design. The stamps were lithographed by Bpost Security Printers. Rating:- *****.

  🇫🇯 Fiji Post issued an interesting set of 4 stamps on 28 September 2017 which depict the Sigatoka sand dunes. For sports enthusiasts one value shows an impromptu game of rugby taking place in the dunes. An excellent set without a particularly high value. Rating:- *****.

  🇰🇾 The Cayman Islands Postal Service released 4 stamps and 1 booklet of 10 x 25c stamps on 2 November 2017 which depict local Christmas scenes. The designs all show pictures of the Christmas decorations put up by the Bodden sisters on South George Street and by the Crichton family at their home on Shamrock Street in Spotts. It seems that both displays have become must-see sites for residents and locals alike over the Christmas period. How charming. 
  The issue was designed by Carmin Godfrey. Rating:- *****.
