    The stamp was withdrawn on July 8th,1948,
    because the pictured temple of Chindambaram
    was not located in French India but in the state
    of Madras in (independent) India.

    I love the fiery, diabolic plane in the second stamp.
    I wasnt aware of stamps that have been issued and retracted due to territory "anexation".
    Thanks

    Hello Ubleo, thank you for your input. I had considered the Otter, but it has a single rear hull after the step, whereas the Stranraer has two steps. On the stamp you cannot see the full tail section, twin or single fins?. The nose gunner and mid gunner position just above the roundel are ok. The thing that worried me was the cockpit window layout, most of the Stranraer cockpits that I've seen have a shorter window layout with doors behind, was this a varient during development?

    Regards, James

    Hello all, the two stamps below were issued on 1969-04-02:

    The first depicts the Vickers Vimy and pilots Alcock & Brown on the first non-stop trans-Atlantic flight crossing, achieved on 14/15th June 1919

    The second stamp depicts an event in 1919, the Australian government offered a prize of £A10,000 for the first Australians in a British aircraft to fly from Great Britain to Australia. Of the six entries that started the race, the winners were pilot Ross Smith, his brother Keith Smith as co-pilot, and mechanics James Bennett and Wally Shiers, in a modified Vickers Vimy bomber.

    Vickers entered a converted Vimy bomber (G-EAOU) (the registration being whimsically said to stand for "God 'elp all of us"), crewed by Captain Ross Macpherson Smith with his brother Lieutenant Keith Macpherson Smith as co-pilot and mechanics Sergeant W.H. (Wally) Shiers and J.M. (Jim) Bennett. The Vimy left Hounslow Heath at 8am on 12 November 1919. It flew via Lyon, Rome, Cairo, Damascus, Basra, Karachi, Delhi, Calcutta, Akyab, Rangoon racecourse, Singora (Songkhla) (in Siam unscheduled in heavy rain), Singapore, Batavia and Surabaya where the aircraft was bogged and had to make use of a temporary airstrip made from bamboo mats, reaching Darwin at 4.10pm on 10 December 1919. The flight distance was estimated as 17,911 kilometres (11,123 mi) and total flying time was 135 hours 55 minutes (131.8 km/h or 81.9 mph). The prize money was shared between the Smith brothers and the two mechanics. The Smith brothers each received a knighthood for this exploit, and the company presented their aircraft to the Australian government. It is now displayed at Adelaide Airport.Vimy and UK to Australia route on the Globe.

    Regards, James

    I certainly second the above statement, although, it seems that France has not put may aircraft on stamps in recent years.
