I have been a bit slack going through this years Isle of Vue full set. And there's plenty to look at there.
Here are the post cards I had in my pack, but there are others. Could people share a picture of their's if it's not the same as these please.



Now I looked at those two barefoot spear-fishing soldiers, and thought 'photoshop job!' But surely they didn't have Photoshop in those days. Anyway, there's atale in them somewhere.

This is a great issue from Colin and Alan and must have taken much preparation and planning. We learn much about Learnu and the Isle of Vue and we even get a map.

My special stamps were the same as Steve's except for my tete-beche pair which has the straight ladder. I have the same canal postcard but this Pagoda card:


Interestingly, we get to see the original postage stamp on which the main stamp is based. It is the Dominica definitive series issued from 1923 to 1933 and features the then seal of the colony and George V. Here is the 1d value:

Those soldiers crop up everywhere. Are the same pair, or are they selected because they look alike?
