The British Forces Philatelic Service, in partnership with the Household Division Charity, will again be producing the official commemorative cover to mark Trooping the Colour at Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Parade.
This majestic cover bears an image that shows all the ‘Pomp and Ceremony’ that can be seen during this historic parade. The cover will bear a 1st class stamp, cancelled using a unique British Forces Postal Service special handstamp No. 3204. The Colour will be trooped by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards and the cancellation features their regimental capstar.
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.
The covers may be ordered by mail order post by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC‘) to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, LEVEN KY9 1AX.
