Red is the Colour


2002: Love
There is a certain lack of hearts and flowers among my collection when I try to theme 'red' with Valentines Day but starting with this vibrant stamp may just do
2007: Flowers
Saying it with flowers, a gerbera daisy symbolises happiness and was sent to his sweetheart
1909: Penny Dominion
across the seas from her beau (she can't resist a uniform)
2011: The Genius of Gerry Anderson (Captain Scarlet)
and beguiled him with dance
sc
1965: Balkan Games
and long telephone conversations (while he was out saving the world from the Mysterons).
2015: Inventive Britain (Fibre Optics)
An entry to Sunday Stamps II theme - the colour red - see red on See It On A Postcard

The New Zealand stamp is superb. Oops, I forget it was Valentines Day.

I love your story told in red. Very nice stamps,with two from some of my favorite royal mail sets, Gerry Anderson and Inventive Britain.

at first I thought that last one was some space-related stamp, depicting some planet or star...really cool one :)

Doesn't the Queen usually face the left? Perhaps she became confused inside that fiber optic cable.

Yes, it looks wrong seeing the Queen face the other way!
I seem to have missed out on that little bit of culture with Captain Scarlet - never heard of him until now.
