steve mcqueen, an amazing artist has created stamps with the faces of those that have died in our name on them.

there is a campaign to make these stamps real and so far royal mail is resisting.

i just know if mners get their names on this petition they can make the difference.

it is an amazing idea. whether you were vehementally anti or pro the war in iraq there is no question that those who fought the war in our name and died deserve commemoration, acknowledgement and honouring.

having their faces present in our every day lives on stamps would do all of the above imo.

lets do this team!!!

here it is

this is a fantastic opportunity to make a really important statement that these men and women dying are not forgotten or pushed aside in our consciousness.

It is fantastic. I am ex-Forces, DH and many friends are still serving and whether you agree with the war or not I think their efforts should be recognised.

(Do you like how I keep bumping this? grin)
