Apparently Ascension asked for another amendment, this time to show the scout in shorts.

Instructions to Robert Elderton.  The scans of the stamps are of very poor quality, so I have not included them.

ECCA stands for East Caribbean Currency Authority.

The Royal Mint commissioned Philip Nathan to provide a design for St Helena, as well as for Ascension and Tristan da Cunha.
