3 June 1865 - 21 January 1936
His Majesty George V, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas, King, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India, passed away on 21 January 1936.

This postcard shows the Downey portrait of His Majesty, which was used for the much-maligned first Great Britain issue of his reign
