  1. Is it known what will be dispensed alongside the flags, I am presuming Machin.

    1. Subsequent to publishing this Colin has advised that both flag and Machin should be available - or so Royal Mail have said. They were both supposed to be available at Salisbury but I believe no Flags were supplied!

  2. Ian, Both flags and Machin were available from both kiosks at Salisbury. (at least they were on the Friday)

    1. Thank you; in that case I misunderstood something I was told or read.

  3. I was able to get flags on the Friday, and there are quite a few listings on ebay for flags with receipts for Friday and Saturday.

    1. Both Flags and Machin Post & Go stamps were avaiable at the Salisbury Stamp Show on Friday and Saturday.

  4. Hi Norvic

    Informative site and wonderful images of beautiful stamps.
