Dear Sir,
Where can I obtain some of the 'Louisa Anne Hawker' stamps. I have been the owner of LAH since 2003 and was fascinated to see that she is depicted on a stamp. She has been berthed in Miri, Sarawak, where I reside, since 2007 and she will be 50 years old in June this year!
Kind regards - Seton Kendrick

I wonder if we could have a photo and maybe the story of how she came to be in Sarawak?
I will make enquiries to see if I can find the stamp.
