Postcard from Montserrat

Montserrat is a Caribbean island—specifically in the Leeward Islands, which is part of the chain known as the Lesser Antilles, in the former British West Indies. It is a British Overseas Territory. Montserrat measures approximately 16 km in length and 11 km in width, with approximately 40 km of coastline. Montserrat is nicknamed "The Emerald Isle of the Caribbean" both for its resemblance to coastal Ireland and for the Irish ancestry of many of its inhabitants.

There's no hand cancellation on this stamps, only machine cancellation beneath them. But i like this stamps very much. They are very unusual for Christmas stamps. Stamps are issued on 12.12.1986.

Thank you very much Wolfgang!
