Boat #238, Sierra Leone

This lighthouse stamp, though quite lovely, does not include a seagoing vessel, and therefore does not qualify as boat #238. So after some digging, I found the stamp below—the only boat stamp in my collection hailing from Sierra Leone.

Can I just say, the British Empire's insistence on slapping the disembodied head of a monarch on every stamp from every one of their territories and colonies is, quite frankly, kind of creepy.
