When Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) was born no one could have supposed that he would rise to become Emperor of France and, due to his success in the Napoleonic Wars, become regarded as one of the greatest military commanders of all time. Similarly none could have imagined that the tiny uninhabited island of Ascension Island would become so transformed by his eventual defeat and exile to St Helena.

This series of postage stamps celebrates Ascension Island's Bicentenary of British Settlement, showing historical scenes, paintings and illustrations from the Napoleonic Years.

Price: £3.35
