🇬🇧 Pobjoy Stamps this morning revealed the end of year issues we have now come to expect from the postal service of British Antarctic Territory with today, 23 November 2021, as the date of issue. They certainly make an excellent collection - interesting, well-designed and relevant - the hallmark of the stamp issues of Creative Direction which coordinates the production of these wonderful philatelic items - long may it continue to do so.
