1958 saw the very first Carry On film (Carry On Sergeant) and the first Hammer horror film (Dracula). And 50 years on, both series of movies are being celebrated by the Royal Mail with its Carry On and Hammer Horror postage stamps.
Six stamps in total – Carry On Sergeant, Carry On Cleo and Carry On Screaming, along with Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Mummy from the Hammer studio. I’m slightly disappointed by a lack of Carry On At Your Convenience and Carry On Camping, not to mention the bonkers Hammer horrors of the 70s, but we can’t have everything.
Both are launched from the 10th June, with collector’s packs already available to order online, starting at £3.43.
And thanks to The Cartoonist for mentioning this as a previous comment.
