1995. 🇬🇧🇫🇰🇬🇸 South Atlantic And Antarctic Territories To Commemorate Sir Ernest Shackleton.

🇬🇧🇫🇰🇬🇸 The postal services of British Antarctic Territory, Falkland Islands and South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands will each issue a set of 4 stamps on 5 January 2022 to commemorate the Centenary of the great British South Atlantic and Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Thanks to Juliet Warner of Pobjoy Stamps for news of this issue. Unfortunately I have not been able to download all the details of these issues. As is usually the case with the new issues of this group of territories these are excellent designs commemorating an important historical figure. Rating:- *****.

  🇹🇷 The postal service of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus issued a pair of stamps on 9 December 2021 to commemorate two anniversaries - the Centenary of the national anthem of Turkey and the opening of the village of Maras. The issue was designed by GK Sonmezer and printed by Devlet Basimevi. Two interesting stamps completing this year’s programme from this territory. Rating:- ***.
