A quantity of these stamps were carried on the re-enactment flight and are available mounted as shown. $6.00

2014 John Leah personalised stamp
John Leah, publisher of Australian Stamps Professional, was a great supporter of the project, which he made the main feature of his magazine, Volume 8 no 2, May 2014. His own 'take' on Guillaux's visit to Australia is a valuable addition to the historical record.
He sent his magazine out with personalised stamps, and limited numbers of these stamps are available. They are for sale at $4 each, and this includes a copy of the magazine.
These are intended for sale to collectors, and are from the stock of stamps that was carried on the re-enactment flight. The stamps can be marked with an imprint of the re-enactment flight or supplied with a statement to that effect on a separate sheet.
