The question was:
A Chinese American, and a Belgian as well as ten others are linked by a Central American Republic, an International Police Organization and a philatelic celebration.
Explain and identify the dozen?
There were five correct answers, well done, to this conundrum which was that:
In 1972 Nicaragua to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Interpol issued a series of twelve stamps with images of great fictional detectives.
Charlie Chan- the Chinese American
Hercule Poirot- the most famous Belgian
Lord Peter Wimsey
These are all were male detectives and I am sure that some readers might be able to suggest six female detectives to even up the numbers in this more enlightened age.
I wonder why they did not include Miss Marple? Or Mrs Bradley?
