Guernsey


Queen Elizabeth II 1977 Silver Jubilee postage stamps

    The small archipelago located in the English Channel, known as the Channel Islands, is comprised of four main islands: Guernsey, Jersey, Sark, and Alderney. The islands, the only British territory to endure German occupation during World War II, lay claim to fine rock scenery, flowering vegetation, and a mild maritime climate.

    Guernsey honours Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her Silver Jubilee through the release of a First Day Cover postmarked on February 8, 1977. The First Day Cover features two stamps designed by Mr. R. Granger Barrett depicting Her Majesty at the time of her accession.
