I didn't know about these before, thank you for posting.

Did you acquire the whole set at once or have you been buying it over time?

Hi Elphin,

Thanks for your comment. I started by buying a few odd stamps but they were typically sold individually. I was then able able to buy one of the stamp albums that I mentioned but it was not a complete collection. So, when a whole set came up for sale with copies of the information slips and at a very reasonable price I snapped it up. This does mean that I have a lot of spares!

I forgot I had this item so I'm adding it here. The page is taken from one of the albums but someone has added the signature of Lord Roberts (FM for Field Marshal) from a letter. Even if it is some kind of autopen signature it is still a nice addition:

Here is a link to a very informative website. It even lists the make up of each sheet:

Much to my surprise, and seemingly little known, there was actually a second series of these stamps issued. Intended to consist of a further 144 stamps with 12 stamps per sheet, only 8 sheets were issued. So, there are a further 96. I B Redguy, a Cinderella  dealer and sometime member of this forum, shows many of these on his website, along with the first series so scroll down, and you can view them here:

Here is the album that I mentioned previously. Of the 3 official albums this is the most expensive one in Royal Blue with Gold blocking. As luck would have it, having looked through it for the first time in quite a while I discovered that, what I thought was a part set of the first series, was actually most of the second series. I think I may be missing about 6 stamps of the second series.

I've seen the 'Personality' stamps and have been slowly collecting them over time but I've never seen the descriptions before.

I have a list of all the names that I know of (from 2 sets) but I wonder if anyone has transcribed the text from the descriptions?
