Ask people to name something they might associate with a magnifying glass and it's likely 'Sherlock Holmes' or 'stamps' might rank high in their responses. The Guernsey Post Philatelic Bureau took this line of thinking a stage further in 2009 by issuing an imaginative 'Sherlock Holmes Stamp Issue and Mystery Pack' to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
. The mystery pack included 6 beautifully-illustrated stamps, a secret code and a special 'whodunnit' to crack - 'Sherlock Holmes and the Curious Case of the Alderney Bull'. A lovely idea and a super gift for super sleuths everywhere!
