For just under 100 years,
from 1874 to 1970, when it became independent, Fiji was a British
colony. The stamp (SCN 120) issued in 1938 did not have the latitude,
180°. In 1940 a corrected stamp was issued.
The stamp was issued in
memory of the 150th anniversary of Admiral Bligh. The design shows
Bligh being chased by islanders.
