After a long and distinguished service within the British Army, the Royal Military Police Mounted Troop was disbanded on the 5th March 1995. Whether it was providing escorts to the Sovereign of the time, patrolling hotspots of the world or performing to the public in the form of displays at the Royal Tournament, the Troop was much loved by both those who served within and those who watched them. To mark this occasion BFPS, in collaboration with the RMP Association has produced a commemorative cover which was published on the 5th March 2020.
The cover bears an image of the superb painting by the renowned equine artist Joan Wanklyn and depicts the disbandment parade of the RMP Mounted Troop. A first-class Royal Mail definitive stamp will be cancelled by the bespoke BFPS 3227 special handstamp, which shows the RMP badge at its centre.
All covers include an A4 double-sided information insert and are presented in a protective cellophane sleeve making this a very collectable souvenir.
Versions of the cover include a standard unsigned cover at £7.50 each and a limited- edition cover of 100, signed by the last Officer Commanding the Mounted Troop and costing £15 each.
