Pharos Extras

Each month Hilary issues to her Pharos subscribers a sheet of stamps which is described in the section headed Pharos.

Together with these issues she includes a free “extra” stamp from the archives of the Pharos Post office.  Rather than disrupt the numbering of the main Pharos section they are described here in the order that they were issued.

After the first three issues the stamps were issued se-tenant with a label which uses the same design as the sponsor slips which accompany each of the main issues.  Although the first of these, the world famous “Woodby” issues are, of course, the finest as you can see.
