The iconic image is from a poster commissioned especially for the Household Division Charity. The cover features a 1st Class stamp from the ‘HM The Queen’s 90th Birthday’ issue, cancelled using the unique BFPS special handstamp No 3198. The Colour will be trooped by No 7 Company, Coldstream Guards and both the cancellation and cover features their Regimental Capstar.

The cover comes complete with an A4 double-sided insert in full colour with an introduction by the GOC Household Division and giving the origin of Trooping the Colour. Both are presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir of Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Parade.

Versions of the cover for sale in the BFPS shop include the standard unsigned and three limited edition signed by military personalities taking part in the parade.

A Stamp & Coin Mart Magazine ‘Subscribers edition’ will be available from the publishers and this is denoted by a special cachet applied to the cover.
