To Celebrate 100 years of Military Flying, RAF Northolt has commissioned BFPS to produce a commemorative cover which will be issued for sale on the 23rd July 2015.
This splendid cover bears images of sketches by Jane French showing the first Station Commander Major G I Carmichael DSO AFC RFC and the present Station Commander Group Captain A D Bacon ADC MA BSc.One hundred of the covers will be a signed limited edition. 50 will be signed by Group Captain Andy Bacon, Station Commander and 50 by Wing Commander Sally Cawdery Officer Commanding Support Wing.
The majority of these covers have been reserved for RAF Northolt, however BFPS has secured a limited quantity for sale to its customers.
A first class stamp “Poppy” has been cancelled by the uniquely numbered BFPS 3184 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 centenary.
You can also buy these covers via mail order by sending a cheque made out to BFPS CIC and sending it to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, Fife, KY9.
