Machin in Solomon

The Elizabeth II effigy by Arnold Machin - 40th anniversary last year - served on British territories and some Commonwealth countries' postage stamps to remind the monarchy when the Queen kept the statute of Chief of State.

For example on this Christmas stamp, part of a series issued in 1970 in the Solomon islands.

This reredos was kept in a church at Kia, a town located in the north part of Santa Isabel island.
