cddstamps on stamps

my thoughts on stamps, stamp collecting, philately in general and maybe a few other topics !

I was at the airport last night seeing my daughter off on her flight back to Sydney and passed the Post Office and was able to get a copy of this recent MS. Hope you like seeing it.  Rather interesting perforations in the middle of each stamp (well I think so).  So showing you.

From the excellent Hongkong Post web site: Hong Kong Girl Guides, established in 1916, has been committed to helping local girls and young women to achieve balanced and all-round development and empowering them to become responsible global citizens through various training activities. Hongkong Post issues a set of four commemorative stamps, incorporating badges of four training areas (i.e. Service, Character, Fitness and Skill) in the background design, to mark the centenary of the founding of Hong Kong Girl Guides. The stamps also illustrate the development of Hong Kong Girl Guides by featuring their uniforms from different periods.

This set of four commemorative stamps exquisitely depicts Hong Kong Girl Guide uniforms from different eras on a light yellow background. The perforation of the stamps in the souvenir sheet, which delineates the emblem of the Association, is unique in design.

Enjoy your stamps              …… Michael
