try to be the web's number 1 resource for up-to-date news
about new stamps of Great Britain, as well as all the new
postmarks, many of them pictorial and of interest to
thematic or topical collectors.
The stamp programme for 2014 is shown below. It
doesn't seem to be quite as attention-grabbing as last year
when Doctor Who and Football Heroes caught the imagination of
the general public. Children's Television attracted a
lot of media interest earlier this year. Stamps for the
Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, attracted a lot of media
attention as did the first issues marking the centenary of
World War I, the first of a co-ordinated series of 5 sets
Don't forget that as it is much quicker for us to write a blog
entry than to update a website, our very latest news will
always be on
our blog. The last 4 blog entries are summarised to the
right of this paragraph.

Our other site is
devoted to the stamps and postal history of the countries of
the Former Soviet Union in the 1990s. This is a
fascinating area of modern postal history and we hope to
find time away from GB new issues to develop this site to
show material from Ukraine, Russia, Azerbaijan, Georgia,
Armenia, Uzbekistan, Lithuania etc, as well as Belarus which
is already shown. We've moved this from Geocities, and
very slightly updated it, and you can now see

24 August 2014
Two new pages have been added this week, for the Symbolic
Flowers Faststamps and Seaside
New postmarks have been added to both the Miscellaneous
Postmarks and Permanent
Postmarks pages, including the start of a long series
of Victoria Cross postmarks.
Details of 4 extra Great
War Centenary stamps are included on that page, and
in our shop.
Locomotives of Wales retail booklet and associated
postmarks has been added to the blog.
Although there were no new special stamps in August (apart
from the Sustainable Fish retail booklet) the stamps from
the end of July and the Faststamps from PhilaKorea, the BPMA
and the NMRA have kept us busy.
