The Isle of Man Post Office is marking the 225th anniversary of "The Times" newspaper by commemorating some of the most significant events of recent history reported in the world famous publication.

"The Times" dates back to 1788. All the headlines reproduced in this new stamp issue, in association with "The Times" newspaper, capture the drama and immediacy of particular news events flashed across the world.

People can still talk about watching in awe remarkable television pictures of American Apollo XI astronaut Neil Armstrong stepping down onto the surface of the Moon in July 1969.

...the six Newspaper Headlines have been carefully selected and these stamps will appeal to a wide variety of thematic collectors from those interested in aviation, American history, royalty, space, football and postal history.
