UK Post to Honour Iraq Soldiers

By: Going Like Sixty - Published: Jun 7, 2008 • References:
The postal officials in the U.K., the Royal Mail, always consider the significance of a theme before they print a series of postage stamps. Steve McQueen, one of the U.K.'s most prominent artists, signed on to create the latest in honour of soldiers who fought in Iraq.

In the last decade his work has been shown in galleries world-wide. It was McQueen's own idea to put the face of every dead U.K. soldier on a stamp. McQueen has launched a petition drive via the web and hopes that public support will enable the stamps to be issued once British troops withdraw from Iraq.
