Gibraltar: John Lennon & Yoko Ono

My first covers from Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of 6.7 km2 and shares its northern border with Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.

The stamps are showing John Lennon and Yoko Ono on their Marriage on 20th March 1969 in Gibraltar. John Lennon said: "We chose Gibraltar because it is quiet, British and friendly (...)".

I sent another cover to Gibraltar in October 2016 but the postmark was not very clear:

John Lennon - Issued: 20-03-1999
