Issue Name: Life and Times of Nelson - Set of 44 Covers
Throughout the 2000s Benham produced several series relating to the Battle of Trafalgar. We recently bought 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 set of 44 covers showcases events from Nelsons life, including becoming Captain of HMS Victory, Commander in Chief of the Meditteranean Fleet, and Command of HMS Agamemnon, as well as his involvement in the war with Spain, attack on Boulogne, Battle of Copenhagen, American War of Independence, and the attack on Santa Cruz, where he lost an arm, as well as personal events such as meeing his wife, the death of his parents, and his funeral.
