Sir Walter Raleigh, Governor of Jersey 1600-1603
Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the most important figures of the Elizabethan era, with a multi-faceted career which brought him to the island of Jersey as Governor during the years 1600-1603. He appeared to have been very much a 'hands on' Governor, improving the militia and the Island's defences, fostering trade and attending sittings of the courts.
Six stamps and a Miniature Sheet reflect various aspects of Sir Walter Raleigh's career and positive impacts that his Governorship had on the island of Jersey, each using illustration combined with words or quotes.
