Five new stamps from the Gibraltar Post Office present a timeline of the sinking of the RMS Titanic ahead of the centenary in April 2012.

The 10p stamp shows the fitting out of the ship, whilst the 42p value shows the ship setting sail from Belfast. Next, is the iceberg hitting the ship (44p), followed by the launch of the lifeboats (54p) and the sinking of the ship (66p).
