Good stamps Bob. I remember Ghandi arriving in England wearing - to my mind - virtually nothing and thinking how cold he must have been.

Wish Gorbachev was still at the helm.

Gagarin is quite a handsome fellow. I think all the other stamps I've seen of him, he's had his helmet on.
Happy Easter to you

Great G gentlemen today. Always interesting to see how Russian names are often spelled differently in different countries.

An interesting contrast of portraiture on stamps.

Didn't know Norway had issued a Gorbatchov stamp! And yeah, G for Gagarin, how did I even overlook that one...a Gagarin fan speaking :))

Not that I dislike it, but I find always a bit strange when countries honour foreign people on their stamps.
