For this week's theme of remembrances/celebrations/anniversaries in April, I found the following stamps in my (disorganised) 'collection'.
The Queen has a birthday on 21st April, the stamp below was issued by Hong Kong for her 60th birthday.
Shakespeare (allegedly) has his birthday on 23rd April, St George's Day, the next stamp is one of a set issued 23 April 1964 for the Shakespeare Festival. The year of his birth was 1564, so this was a centenary year.
The next stamp dates from 1965 and is for the Centenary of Joseph Lister's discovery of antiseptic - and I've included it with today's theme as a 'medical-themed' stamp for World Health Day, 7th April.
So, as I was looking for stamps for this week, I 'found' several which would've been perfect for recent themes, if only I had found them in the correct week, so here they are . . . (if the theme comes up again I am sure to have 'lost' them) . . .
the lighthouse off Beachy Head, in a set from 2006 . . .
a couple of stamps with minerals . . .
and this one from a landscapes set in 1966, is County Antrim, N Ireland . . .
