SHIP STAMP SOCIETY

SHIP STAMP SOCIETY

Interested in Ships and Stamps? The Ship Stamp Society is an international society and publishes it’s journal, Log Book, six time a year.

The editor of Log book will retire this coming August and, unless a new one comes forward, the society will close.
With this in mind, we are not taking in any new members.
This is an unfortunate situation but seemingly unavoidable.

First stamp to feature a ship

Postby lestermay » Fri May 11, 2012 1:28 pm

I am a former naval officer (Lieutenant-Commander RN) and now naval historian. I am compiling a Naval and Maritime Chronology and an Index of Flag Officers.

It would be good to add entries related to ships on stamps - I am no philatelist, although I have a few ship stamps in my collections of nautical material - and I would value advice of collectors. For example:

Q1 - Which was the first ever postage stamp to feature a ship?
Q2 - Which was the first ever postage stamp to feature one of HM Ships?
Q3 - Which was the first ever postage stamp to feature an admiral?
Q4 - Which was the first ever postage stamp to feature a British naval officer?
Q5 - Have any countries with no coastline featured ships on stamps?
Q6 - Has naval aviation featured on stamps - which was the first?

That's more than enough to start. I would value your thoughts. I will happily follow up leads, of course, as I not asking others to do the work for me - but I do need a "starter for ten" so to speak.

Many thanks,

Maybe you may, however, find a preferable stamp display method among the ideas discussed.. :)
