Gustamps had an interesting visit from Peter P. Peter came to Gustamps shop in Brighton and asked Gustamps for a particular stamp. The stamp Gustamps was asked for by Peter was the New Zealand armed forces ten cent stamp of 1968 (SG Cat. no. 885) Peter told Gustamps he wanted several examples of the stamp. When Gustamps manager looked up the stamp in the catalogue he could not believe what he saw. Peter was the man on the stamp! Peter told Gustamps manager he was an airman in New Zealand and was asked by the New Zealand Post Office if they could depict him on the stamp. Gustamps heard how Peter P was seen by millions of people worldwide. Peter told Gustamps that back then the New Zealand Post Office normally only portrayed royalty on stamps or people who had died. Gustamps heard that Peter was the first non Royal live person on an N.Z. stamp. Peter P was a really nice, friendly man and kindly signed his autograph for some of Gustamps customers.
Gustamps manager really enjoyed meeting Peter P. and thanks him on behalf of Gustamps customers for his autograph.
