Guernsey is a group of islands in the English Channel, close to the coast of France, but governed as a dependent territory of the British Crown. Great Britain issued some regional stamps for Guernsey between 1958 and 1969; in the latter year the creation of the Royal Mail as a public corporation resulted in Guernsey's post office becoming a separate entity, and issuing its own stamps subsequently.
