A-Z of the United Kingdom, Part 2

We are now able to reveal the subjects of the A-Z part 2 (or M-Z) set to be issued on 10 April 2012.

As we expected, this is a bit like those philatelic society evenings where you show "Anything beginning with ...." and use any device possible to fit your favourite stamps or postal history items into the letter concerned.

The subjects are:
• Manchester Town Hall.
• Narrow Water Castle, Northern Ireland.
• Old Bailey.
• Portmeirion, Wales.
• The Queens College Oxford.
• Roman Baths.
• Stirling Castle, Scotland.
• Tyne Bridge.
• Urquart Castle, Scotland.
• Victoria and Albert Museum - with the EUROPA logo
• White Cliffs of Dover.
• Station X Bletchley Park.
• York Minister.
• ZSL (Zoological Society of London) London Zoo.


The stamps will, as far as we know, be printed in strips of 7 in two sheets.  They will thus vie with the Battle of Hastings se-tenant strip of 4d values to be the most difficult to mount in an album!  More details will be on our website in due course.


  1. apparently one stamp is bearing the Europa logo (Victoria and Albert Museum) !
