To mark Armistice Day on November 11ᵗʰ 2016 BFPS has produced a simple but moving Forces cover.
Three paragraphs from the poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon have been used on the cover. The Post & Go 1st class stamp ‘Poppy’ will be cancelled by the specially designed ‘BFPS 3202 We Remember’ special handstamp that incorporates a silhouette of a soldier poised in reflection. The Poppy design from the Symbolic Flowers Post and Go stamp set was re-introduced for use on the 24ᵗʰ October and will be on issue until 13ᵗʰ November 2016.
The Post & Go kiosk M001 operated by HQ BFPO at RAF Northolt will issue this stamp between 24th October and 11th November. It will bear the overprint legend ‘Headquarters BFPO Lest we forget’ and is of very limited availability due to the nature of this location.
The cover comes with an information insert and these will be presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir to mark the event.
These may be ordered by post using the BFPS Mail Order form and by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, LEVEN KY9 1AX.
