RAF Leuchars in Fife, Scotland will be formally handed over to the British Army on the 31st March 2015. The base will be re-named “Leuchars Station” and will become home to a variety of military units. In recognition of this historic occasion the Forces Philatelic Bureau will be publishing a special commemorative cover.
The cover carries a stunning aerial photograph of Leuchars taken by Drew Dudgeon superimposed with the Station crest and the cap badges of the four main military units that will occupy the site. A Scottish regional definitive stamp has been cancelled by the unique BFPS 3183 special handstamp.
The cover comes complete with an A4 double-sided insert in full colour giving the base’s history. Both are presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir of the handover.
