I aim to collect one MNH postage stamp (1947 -2017)and one used postage stamp(1947 to 1997) each of the post independent India issues. Other that that, I collect world wide postage stamps on the theme of Cinema. I also collect on authors/painters/musicians/composers and anything on entertainment.

8 out of 10 for me, an improvement on my average (would have been even better but for my woeful lack of knowledge on the taxonomy of penguins!!!).

Thanks for another entertaining and enjoyable quiz, Margo. :D

Agreed. I got 7/10, not knowing about the date of NZ's first issue, nor the occupation of the Japanese forger.
But the Queen question WAS a googly because none of the answers was right. It was the 50th anniversary of the formation of the band, not any 50th anniversary of Freddie Mercury.

Sorry Glen, 20 per cent full. Speak to RogerE re maths, and NOT a criticism as I do not want another lockout..
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.
