Stamps in 2015 unveiled

BATTLES, COMEDIANS, inventions and rugby will all feature on special stamps being issued by the Royal Mail in 2015.

The special stamp programme will start with British inventions such as the world wide web, followed by a set of 10 stamps celebrating the engineering of bridges. Comedy greats will be the subject of stamps in April, including an image of the Two Ronnies.
