Stamps and Postal History of the British Commonwealth

British Commonwealth Stamps - “The Sun never sets on the British Empire!” was the old colonial adage, but all things come to an end. Stamp collecting has given us an incredible legacy, with collectors from every corner of the globe being able to enjoy a breadth of designs and styles as diverse as the old Empire itself. From Dhows sailing off Aden to a Polar supply vessel steaming toward the Falkland Islands. From Turtles on the beach at Ascension Island to the Camel Postmen of Sudan riding in the baking desert heat. These stamps are bound by Monarchs, a few currencies and, in most cases, just a few major printers whose workmanship was rarely surpassed.
