1996. ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡น Bhutan’s Dedication Week Issue.


๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡น Bhutan Postal Corporation Ltd issued 5 miniature sheets on, I think, 14 December 2021 commemorating the King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, in an issue titled ‘Dedication Week’. A colourful and interesting issue. Rating:- ****.

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Pakistan Post issued a single stamp on 9 December 2021 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Hangor Day. The Hangor was a Pakistan Navy submarine which during the 1971 war with India sank the Indian ship INS Khukri at a time when the Indian Navy was thought to be preparing for an attack on the port of Karachi. The stamp uses a design “supplied by the customer” (the Pakistan Navy?) and was lithographed by National Security Printing Corporation Karachi and is perforated 13. Rating:- ****.

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ In Blog 1967 I depicted the sheetlet of 18 stamps and 2 miniature sheets issued by Jamaica Post to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Jamaica Post Office. I now depict these items again but with much better quality illustrations. Sadly, it’s worth noting that the total face value of the sheetlet of 18 is 4980 Jamaican dollars, equal to £24.26p which is clearly excessive though equally we must remember that new issues from Jamaica are highly infrequent and that this set appears to be the only issue of 2021 from Jamaica Post.


  1. Those Bhutan stamps look familiar...
    They are identical to the 2010 issue '1st Anniversary of the Coronation'!

    1. Thanks Stewie1980. They looked familiar to me as well but I could not find them when I searched for them after I saw them featured on the Bhutan Post Facebook page. It seems that Bhutan Post were using an old issue to draw attention to Dedication Day and your comment has been helpful in preventing me hunting high and low for the issue.
