We are delighted to present our latest set of Post and Go stamps, which feature
some of the lighthouses that can be found in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
The Bailiwick’s heritage is intrinsically linked
with the sea and the islands have an impressive maritime history. The unique
position of the islands meant that they were perfectly placed to benefit from
privateering and smuggling, and Guernsey has always been a busy trading port - wrecks
in the surrounding waters are evidence of that.
Over the years many structures have been built
across the Bailiwick as aids to seafarers and of
course to warn passing boats of dangerous reefs. This Post and Go issue
includes beautifully illustrated stamps showing six of the Bailiwick’s most
interesting and impressive lighthouses and navigation marks.
