The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    You're welcome, Chris.

    FYI, I see that there are two First Day Covers in the set which can be ordered from outside the UK.
     
  6. I never held my gas mask like that! o_O I don't know. I thought when the RM asked for the loan of my portrait it was for the Royals to admire me in my youth, not for Royal Mail! 8O 8O :eek:

    Take it the stamp with the WRN Officer on will be worth quite a bit when they realise the top stripe is incorrect. Should be a diamond not a curl.

    Nerdy question.... :oops: ...

    ....but does anybody know why the Royal Mail still use such an old sillhouette of the Queen on stamps as opposed to a more up-to-date version on coins?

    I'm intrigued 'cos I've just come back from the pub and it's now the most important thing in the world ....

    ....for the next 5 minutes. :wink:

OOPS last minute the Jockeys got a big problem, its a no go!!!!! If by magic the red flag starts to be shown,and raised. green gently lowered, disaster over,BZ that chockhead 8)
