re: STAFFA...labels or stamps?

These are labels, without postal validity. Many islands around Scotland are bird/wildlife sanctuaries. They have issued so-called stamps as souvenirs to raise money to support the sanctuaries.

Some other islands, like Lundy, do offer tourists a postal service. Lundy stamps are affixed to mail, along with the appropriate stamps from Great Britain. The Lundy stamps pay for the service of transferring the mail from Lundy to the Royal Mail. The British stamps pay the postage from Great Britain to the recipient.

re: STAFFA...labels or stamps?

I get excited whenever I see references to the island of Staffa but sadly not when I see the labels.

Here's something a posted here four years ago:

"Staffa is a wonderful island but it is small and uninhabited, and not many tourists land there.

I saw it in 1974 at the age of 14 from the deck of the old paddle-steamer, the King George V. I remember vividly how impressed I was when I saw the memorial plaque on the ship recording her part in the rescue of the BEF from Dunkirk (75 years ago this week).

I also remember being excited seeing the basalt pillars on the island and the entrance to Fingal's cave.

Great memories." Happy

I hope to see the island again sometime but I'm afraid the labels were just another of Clive Feigenbaum's money-making schemes.
