A postcard from the West Indies: Montserrat


Postcard
Montserrat is a British Overseas Territory located in the Caribbean. Soufrière Hills Volcano began to erupt in 1995, for the first time since the 17th century.

The lava flows and ash falls forced two-thirds of the island's population to flee. Today the island has about 4,500 inhabitants.

Stamp
Part of a set of 12 butterfly stamps, issued 2013.
