[Collins Hodge] Anguilla's revolutionary stalwarts are being commemorated on the country's postage stamps:

"The Anguilla Philatelic Bureau has taken the initiative to perpetually honour the selfless service of those men and women who worked with great resolve, placing country above self in their quest for self determination.

"Heroes and Heroines of Anguilla's Revolution is intended to be a continuous theme to honour posthumously those who featured prominently in the struggle to liberate their country from servitude and poverty's ever tightening grasp. It is an honour to salute the work and memory of four Anguillans whose loyalty to country speaks volumes as their fitting epitaphs.

Collins O. Hodge (1925-1978)

"Collins O. Hodge was one of the fearless instigators of the Anguilla revolution. He was among a nucleus of activists who advocated the return of foreign policeman from Anguillan soil.

"This was perhaps one of the most significant acts of the famous revoltion, for it sent a clear message to the existing powers that Anguillans were not tolerant of the status of Statehood which Britain, through Robert Bradshaw sought to impose through military might.

"This outspoken and militant leader became a member of the Anguilla council in 1967.
