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.
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.
