🇸🇬 Singapore Post has announced that all of its stamp issues planned for release in April and May 2020 have been postponed to a later as yet undetermined date.
🇬🇧 Captain Thomas Moore - ‘Captain Tom’ - Britain’s new national treasure, whose 100th birthday is being commemorated by a special Royal Mail postmark during this present week (see Blogs 1649 and 1652), has been promoted to the rank of Honorary Colonel and so one wonders if Royal Mail might alter the postmark to take account of his new rank.
Meanwhile, a lovely cover arrived in the post today with the Captain Tom postmark dated 29 April 2020 neatly placed on a 1st Class stamp of the 2019 Christmas issue showing the Madonna and child. The choice of stamp may be fortuitous as it ties in with another piece of good news that cheered up Britain on the 29 April - the announcement of the birth of a boy to the British prime minister and his partner.
