Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant stamps from IOM Post Office
The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant will showcase one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the Thames and the biggest collection of historic vessels. The Manx vessels: a lifeboat from the historic Lady of Mann ship (the last vessel present at Dunkirk to survive), now converted as a cabin cruiser and Vital Spark -- one of four replica Viking longboats built to be used in the annual World Viking longboat races held in the Isle of Man, will both form a special part of 1,000 vessels and 20,000 people on the Thames on June 3.
