Ellan Vannin Miniature Sheet

This year marks the centenary of one of the saddest Manx shipping disasters.

In December 1909 the 339-ton passenger and cargo steamer Ellan Vannin fought through a hurricane in a bid to get to Liverpool and then vanished.

It is appropriate that the Isle of Man Post Office should commemorate this event as 'getting the mail through' was the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company's founding objective in 1830.
