VIP visits Cayman Islands philatelic bureau

Shown above is British Member of Parliament Andrew Rosindell presenting Cayman Islands Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow (far right) with a poster of the Queen's 80th birthday (Jubilee) celebration. He recently visited the British territory which is located just west of Jamaica in the Carribean.

While there, Rosindell was also presented with Cayman Islands' Aquatic Treasures stamps and miniature sheet from Cayman Islands Philatelic Manager, Karen McField (pictured on the left).

According to Cayman NetNews, Rosindell is an avid stamp collector.

The website quotes Rosindell as saying he enjoys collecting stamps, especially those with the Royals or British overseas territories themes, and added that stamps issued by the Cayman Islands Postal Service impressed him.

"Cayman Islands stamps are beautiful. Stamps are wonderful teaching tools. They can teach children about geography, culture and looking at details," Rosindell said.
