Royal Mail has commissioned photographer Nigel Millard

Royal Mail has commissioned photographer Nigel Millard to commemorate the centenary of the adoption of SOS as the worldwide Morse code distress signal, on a new range of first class, 46p, 48p and 54p stamps. Millard’s images show lifeboats in action in St Ives, Barra Island, north Devon and Dorset. They are designed to show the SOS signal of three dots, followed by three dashes, followed by three dots on perforations along the stamps’ edges.
