Grace Darling Anniversary

First issued in September 2013

September’s stamp commemorates the 125th anniversary of Grace Darling’s heroic actions in rescuing survivors of a wrecked steamship.  Grace is probably the world’s most famous lighthouse resident.

The extra stamp is issued to celebrate Pharos zoo’s latest additions.  To everyone’s surprise including, apparently, her own, giant panda Lai Taos has given birth to twin cubs Ang Ling and Phar Ming.  Mother and cubs are doing well.  The father was not available for comment.
