        Can pick them up on the GPO in the stamp shop (or "Philatelic" shop, if you will) - prestige booklet includes four sets of stamps and a bi-lingual entry on each of the three services, as well as overseas deployments.

          We'd ask the Air Corps to provide some lads to lick stamps but they all went home at half eleven.

                Aren't modern stamps sticky? A shame, it must have put quite a few people out of the stamp licking job.
