COMMONWEALTH LANDS HONOR `QUEEN MUM' WITH STAMPS

"Queen Mum," the beloved queen mother of Great Britain, is being honored on her 95th birthday by many countries of the Commonwealth with special stamps for the occasion.

Each of the countries is releasing a se-tenant (attached) strip of four different stamps printed in a special sheetlet of eight stamps, or two complete sets. At the bottom of each sheetlet is the inscription "The Lady of the Century."Some of the souvenir sheets show the queen mother at various stages of her life. Included are scenes with her husband, King George VI; with her daughters (Elizabeth and Margaret) and her grandchildren.

These stamps are available at your local dealer.
