New Stamp Commemorates Sinking Of RMS Leinster

The Irish postal operator, An Post, has released a new 55c stamp which commemorates the 90th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Leinster, torpedoed by a German U-boat on October 10th, 1918, one month before the end of World War 1, just 12 miles out from Dun Laoghaire harbour (then Kingstown).

Designed by the renowned Irish illustrator Vincent Killowry, with typography and layout by Steve Simpson, the new stamp features a very striking original drawing of the RMS Leinster with one of her anchors in the foreground.
