Commonwealth Games 1986
These PHQ cards and stamps were issued in July 26 years ago. I thought, until I scanned the last card, that they were all celebrating the Commonwealth Games but the last is the World Hockey Cup. Our "Welcome to the Olympics" stamps have not been issued yet (27 July) but we have, of course, had a large number of others leading up to the event.
The 1986 Commonwealth Games were held in Edinburgh, Scotland. The four nations making up the United Kingdom take part individually so I'm surprised to see what I would take to be a UK vest on the 22p stamp.
