🇺🇬 The postal service of Uganda issued a set of 4 stamps on 1 January 2019 to commemorate the Uganda Communication Commission which was established in 1998. The stamps are interesting in that they are inscribed with the word Postes rather than postage, some French influence perhaps? This is the first new issue from Uganda since a set of 13 stamps depicting local primates (apes and monkeys not bishops) was issued on 15 May 2017. Rating:- *****.
Interesting new issues from the postal services of countries which were part of the British Empire or in special relations with it but which did not join The Commonwealth:-
🇧🇹 Bhutan Post - 5 February 2019 - Chinese New Year, Year of The Pig - 1 sheetlet containing 12 different stamps and 1 single stamp miniature sheet. Rating:- ***.
