The Christmas stamps have the year reversed out of the phosphor bands, as usual. On the 2nd class stamp the date is at top centre, on all others it is at top right. The miniature sheet follows the same pattern except that the date is at the foot of the two Large Letter stamps.
We've added pictures of the Miniature sheet and Generic Smilers Sheet to the blogpost linked in the previous paragraph.
We have the Poppy Stamp and have added pictures and details to the original thread.
My apologies to readers and commenters - the original thread has been irretrievably deleted in error. There doesn't seem to be any way to recover it. A picture of the whole sheet has now been added as a new post.
As yet no special postmarks have been announced for 23 October.
Paralympic Gold Medal Winners
Our webpage has now been updated to show all these stamps as they were issued, with details of when the medals were won. That should make it easier for readers than working through the various blogposts.
