The Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes (NAAFI) was established by the British Government in December 1920 when the Expeditionary Force Canteens (EFC) and the Navy and Army Canteen Board (NACB) were combined to run the recreational establishments needed by the Armed Forces, and to sell goods to servicemen and their families. Since then NAAFI has supported the British Forces at home and abroad, including the conflicts in The Falklands, the two Gulf Wars and Afghanistan amongst many others.
In December this year NAAFI celebrates its one hundredth birthday and to mark this BFPS has produced a commemorative cover to be issued on the 9th December 2020.
Each commemorative cover will have an information insert both of which will be presented in a protective cellophane slip making a highly desirable collectable.
There will be a limited number of the Royal Mail Smiler® stamp sheets bearing the stamps used on the cover available to sell.
Our Forces 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.
Please note that these items will be despatched on or after the 9th December 2020
