1232. 🇫🇰 RAF Centenary Issues From Ascension, Falklands And Tristan.

  🇫🇰 The postal services of The Falkland Islands, Ascension Island and Tristan Da Cunha all plan to issue sets of 4 stamps each on 2 July 2018 to commemorate the Centenary of the Royal Air Force. The stamps were designed beautifully by Robin Carter and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5. Rating:- *****.
  Many thanks to Juliet Warner of Pobjoy Stamps for information about these issues.

  The postal service of St Helena has now issued or is just about to issue, though I'm still not sure of the precise release date, 2 new sets - 1 previously mentioned to commemorate the wedding of the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex made up of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet and the second to mark the final visit to the island by RMS St Helena, again made up of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet.

  The Royal Wedding issue:-

  The Final voyage of RMS St Helena issue:-

  🇹🇷 The postal administration of the Turkish Republic Of Northern Cyprus issued a pair of stamps and a miniature sheet containing 2 of each stamp on 18 May 2018 as its contribution to the annual Europa omnibus series which this year features local bridges. This is an attractive and pleasing issue. Rating:- ****.
