1203. 🇬🇬 New Counter-Based Post And Go Unit For Guernsey Post.

  🇬🇧 I have previously illustrated the set of 6 stamps which Royal Mail will release on 17 April 2018 on the subject of Reintroduced Species but now include better quality illustrations of this excellent set. The set manages to include a creature for almost every natural history thematic collection - mammals, birds, flowers, reptiles and amphibians and butterflies. Rating:- *****.

  🇬🇬 Guernsey Post will use a new counter mounted Post and Go machine at the Essen International Stamp Fair which will take place from 3 to 5 May 2018. The new machine, GG03, will dispense the Guernsey Flag Post and Go stamps with an additional inscription applied, "Messe Essen/3-5 May 2018". Being dispensed on German soil means that these items will have no postal validity where they were actually issued and can only be used for genuine postal services if transported all the way back to Guernsey itself. Rating:- 0.

  🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a set of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet on 18 April 2018 on the subject of 'Early trades'. The issue was designed by Lim An-ling and lithographed by Thai British Security Printing and perforated '13-14'. The set gives a pleasing look at Old Singapore. Rating:- *****.

    You can delete this when done, I'm not showing you up!

    1. Thanks Ian. I'll correct it. It's easy to get confused as Gibraltar, IOM, Guernsey and Jersey are all much of a muchness.
      Best wishes,
