Letter: New Model pikeman of the Post Office

Sir: I did wonder, in this year of republican murmurings, at that 24p postage stamp, edged in black and commemorating the English Civil War, which shows a New Model pikeman gazing somewhat wistfully at the Queen's disembodied head.

Has the Post Office an axe to grind?

Yours faithfully,
