The Battle of Jutland took place between the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet on the 31st May 1916 in the North Sea, off the mainland of Denmark. Involving some 250 ships and 100,000 men, this battle was the only major naval surface engagement of World War I. Both sides claimed victory in this indecisive battle, though Britain retained control of the North Sea.

Showing the positions of the British and German Fleets, the cover bears an appropriately designed smiler stamp. This will be cancelled by the BFPS numbered 3197 special handstamp, which incorporates the Jutland Centenary logo.

Included is an insert with information about the battle. Along with the cover It is presented in a cellophane sleeve making a great souvenir to mark the centenary.

The covers are also available to buy by post by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, Fife, KY9 1AX.
