historic uniform of Royal Scots regiment

I thought I was going to be defeated by weapons (the theme) until I remembered some cards showing the uniforms of various regiments in the British Army.  And they have weapons!

These are two out of a set of five from the 1983 series of stamps and PHQ stamp cards.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, in its current home at "See it on a Postcard!"


  1. Glad you found some. But, really, that one Green Jacket doesn't very serious with that stance to me!

  2. This was a fine set; I have these two and one at 20.1/2p

  3. Seems like a lot of the stamps today are from the UK - I like these, and if I remember correctly the set looked at soldiers through the ages, ending with a modern soldier in camouflage.

  4. I like these action scenes, it also reminds me how enormous the old blunderbusses were.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
