For all you uniform buffs who also perhaps have a secondary hobby as stamp collectors, you may be interested to know that one of Osprey\'s artists, Graham Turner, has recently produced a series of stamps showing the evolution of British Army uniforms for the Royal Mail. This first set, in a planned series of three, shows a vast variety of uniforms from a Rifleman of 1813 to a Tank Commander of 1944 and an NCO from the Royal Military Police. One of the greatest challenges said Graham was “to make each soldier appear as human as possible, rather than looking like a series of dummies in uniforms”, and of course all within a minute scale! The stamps can be viewed at this link and if you would like to know more about Graham\'s other projects, as well as updates on his next exhibition here is link to his website.
