Royal Mail - (PHQ 387) Remarkable Lives (Postcards)


(PHQ 387) Remarkable Lives
Royal Mail
10 Postcards (1 Footballer)

The Royal Mail recently issued this set of 10 stamps. As is their custom, they also issued postcards depicting each of the stamps, as shown above. Also illustrated is the 'filler' card that is included in the First Day Cover.
Please forgive my indulgence, but one of the stamps features Dylan Thomas, one of my heroes. Please take the time to listen to him reading one of his most famous poems.

Barbara Ward (1914-1981 - helped to inspire the European Union)
