HMAS Australia - Flagship of the Australian Navy
Fascinating Commemorative Sheet Showing Progressive Printing Colors
Stately defender of the South Pacific in World War I, the HMAS Australia was instrumental in driving the Germans from their Pacific outposts in New Guinea and Samoa, and then protected the British Isles from German attacks in the North Sea!
This attractive commemorative sheet from the Marshall Islands, a former German colony, shows the legendary battleship in the Firth of Forth, on the east coast of Scotland, at the height of the war in 1915. This sheet measures 4½ x 7½ inches and was issued in 1999 to publicize the Marshall Islands Post Office's participation at the Australia 99 World Stamp Expo. The interesting progression of color can be seen from the circles underneath each image that shows the addition of cyan, magenta, yellow and black to the full-color image of the actual postage stamp.
