Gibraltar show innovation: slivers of HMS Victory to be used in stamp

The Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau are to release a special set of stamps to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar next year which will contain slivers of wood taken from HMS Victory.

An innovative printing process devised by French company Cartor Security Printing means that tiny wafers of wood taken from the ship during its recent restoration will be attached to the stamps.
