20130405 - FRANCE

*** UPDATE ***
Yesterday I received a copy of this booklet from France about horses.   And after a closer view of the stamps, I cleared a doubt about a second stamp with lighthouse in this issue.  The stamp number 2 has a lighthouse too.  It is like a phantom lighthouse.

Tall Tower + Short Tower + Normandie = Barfleur + Gatteville 

Thanks Jaap again,  for the alert on these 2 stamps.
