I struggled to find anything very appropriate for this week but I settled on the series of five stamps depicting the Spanish Armada. My theory was that Britain maintained its independence by fighting off the Armada, a battle to retain its liberty from invasion by Spain. I particularly liked the stamp shown because it shows the white Cliffs of Dover at the top behind the queen's head.
Of course, after I had scanned the card, I suddenly remember I have a stamp card that is even more to the point.
It's one of the very few maxicards I have. It's just a shame the "First day of issue" cancellation was smudgy.
