Issue Name: The Maritime Flags - Set of 26 Covers
Throughout the 2000s Benham produced several series relating to the Battle of Trafalgar. We recently bouht a good stock of these very nicely designed covers and are pleased to be able to showcase them here. They are cancelled with a special Battle of Trafalgar postmark, and each feature a cachet celebrating Nelson's historic victory. Each set of covers has a tremendous variety of Trafalgar related stamps from across the world including Ghana, Dominica, Montserrat, Tuvalu, Sierra Leone, Antigua and Barbados, St Vincent, Gambia, and many more.
This lovely set of 26 covers depict the meanings of a variety of flag signals which the British fleet would use during their sea journeys and in battle such as the signals for man overboard, alter course starboard, ship quarantined, fire onboard and ship disabled.
