It is actually MAYREAU:


Don't believe everything you read on Wiki.

I beg to differ.
Myreau on the Souvenir sheet (Hence error?)

Another "Diana with flowers". Papua New Guinea. Spring buttercups and fall chrysanthemums. Does anyone know if Diana visited the island? Charles did.



(That difference in spelling of Mayreau/Myreau is interesting; good to know that they weren't battered by Irma. K.)

Perhaps they just can't make up their minds:

SG lists as Grenadines of St Vincent. Mayreau (all included in the Appendix section). The Einstein issues listed as 2011.

Some more islands and some more flowers, lilies and roses and the next generation. Even some of London in the background. Maldives, 2016.

Cannot see any reference to one, Kris.

Hi Brian,
I was hoping to trick you, I was presuming the two (perhaps) anglicised names,
depended on what part of the Grenadines was pertinent.

What seems to have occurred , is that all the stamps after 2004 are illegal,
hence we can assume maybe, that all these stamp sheets have been produced by the nefarious.

I am unsure either way, however, this is what I came across, on another forum........

They are 'illegal' since 2004:

According to a highly interesting report by Martin Bohnstedt, published in the German philatelic magazine
MICHEL-Rundschau No 10/2005 (Legale Briefmarken in St. Vincent?), there is a serious problem. On one side we
have the St. Vincent Philatelic Services Ltd. which manages the production of stamps (made by IGPC) and sells
them to collectors. On the other side stands the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Postal Corporation, also a private
company since 1 October 2003. The latter does not (and cannot) serve any mail decorated with items sold by the
Philatelic Services because they do not pay any money to the Postal Corporation. Therefore, the Postal Corporation
declared just one definitive series valid for postal use. These stamps used to be ordered directly at a printing house
and do not run for sale via the Philatelic Services at all.
To sum all that up: Items issued after 2003 and sold by the Philatelic Services only are invalid right from the start.
All former stamps sold by the Philatelic Services are invalid too since 2004.

I do not want to hijack Kris' thread, I'll just note, lots of funny business surrounding
the Grenadines.
Huge amounts of forgeries.

Hi Rod, Thanks for all the info! That's the fun of collecting - one learns more than one expected, and especially in the fields of history and geography. Surely Diana stamps belong to the most frequently "faked" of any stamps issued, simply because she was so popular, so charismatic. Sure, I started this thread, but it's certainly not mine! It belongs to anyone who enjoys participating. I collect mainly because a topic and how it is presented on stamps is interesting; looking up the background adds to the fun. (The only sad part of "fakes" is that so many collectors get badly cheated if they invest in something without knowing its true value!)

Speaking of islands, although I have visited Scotland many times, I had never heard of Davaar. It is a tiny bit of land off the coast of Kintyre. Local stamps were issued for Davaar starting in 1964 to serve visitors to the island who wished to have their mail posted there. Mail was carried by the boatman to the nearest GPO post box at Campbeltown on the mainland. Postage rates were double those of the UK. The boatman postal service ended some time in the early 1970s, but stamps bearing the Davaar Island name were printed at least until the late 1980s. The island is no longer inhabited, the lighthouse is automated. See the "stampaday" site for lots of info.

That is a very late emission from Davaar Island.
Not seen any new stamps from the tidal island for years........

The Solomon Islands put out a whole album of pictures for Diana, including even her parents and Mother Teresa.

For the 5th anniversary of Diana's death, from St. Kitts (St. Christopher and Nevis). Let's hope the islands recover from this year's hurricanes!
