Barbados 50th Anniversary of Independence stamps are here

Barbados was busy in November and December.

First there was the build up the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, then, as the day arrived the island suffered awful flooding. Undeterred, the island partied long and hard and then immediately the Bureau were preparing the Centenarians issue (more of that in a week or so) and Christmas arrived. Naturally post was delayed so it’s only now, in early January, that the Independence issues have arrived here in the UK.

As we said in our earlier post, they are not a disappointment, with a range of six stamps and a souvenir sheet along with First Day Covers to match.

So, here are the actual stamps;
