Welsh Antarctic Daipendency

Wales lays claim to a 1,175,000 square mile of Antarctica based on similarities on the coastal outlines. Shepherds and scientists based there are trying to breed sheep that will survive the harshest of weather.

The definitive stamps are reminiscent of the first QEII issues of South Georgia and purely by accident, or fate was playing tricks, feature whales.

The decimalised issues, delayed by bad weather and/or a faulty compass on the supply ship are the £sd issues overprinted and re-valued. Some non-standard overprints are known.

Some non-standard overprints are known, and some apparently bogus issues supposedly announcing unilateral declaration of independence of the protectorate.

There have been few special issues, but those that have appeared commemorate ground-breaking events in this small community.
