In 1998 a set of five stamps were issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the passing of Sir Malcolm Campbell, Britain's early world speed land and water record holder.

Donald Campbell was the son of Sir Malcolm Campbell, holder of 13 world speed records in the 1920s and 30s in the famous 350HP V12 Sunbeam and Bluebird cars and boats.
Donald Campbell broke eight world speed records in the 1950s and 1960s and remains the only person to set both world land and water speed records in the same year (1964).
Donald Campbell's Bluebird CN7 and Sir Malcolm Campbell's Sunbeam are both on display at the National Motor Museum in Hampshire, England.

Ken and Lewis Norris were the designers of both Donald Campbell's record breaking Bluebird boat K7 and Bluebird car CN7.

Daughter Gina Campbell set the women's world water speed record in 1984 and again in 1990 in "Bluebird II".

Don Wales, grandson of Malcolm Campbell and nephew of Donald Campbell, has contested other land speed records
in various power plants including electric, steam and lawn mower.
