The Bailiwick of Guernsey
includes the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethos and
Lihou. Since 1969 the Bailiwick has issued its own stamps. Among the
first stamps issued were two stamps which displayed a map of the
Bailiwick. However, the latitude was incorrect (40°30'N
instead of 49°30'N). they were corrected and
were corrected and reissued 1970. One stamp from each issue is shown.
The stamp below is on cover.
Jamaica became an
independent state in the British Commonwelath in 1962. The stamp is one of a set of three. Similar sets were
also issued for Jamaica, St. Christopher Nevis Anguilla, and Trinidad & Tobago. The other values will
be seen there.
The Republic of Ireland is
the whole island of Ireland except for some 5,237 square miles on the
north coast. The map does not recognize the existence of Northern
Ireland. The design is a common one. The overprint reads "In memory of
the Rebellion of 1916."
