In June 1921, Field Marshal Earl Haig formed the Royal British Legion Scotland (Legion Scotland) as it is now known, by bringing together several charities that had been established to assist those returning from the horrors of the First World War and residing in Scotland. This year sees the centenary of the charity.
BFPS in partnership with Legion Scotland will be marking this historic occasion by producing a commemorative cover to be be published on the 18 June 2021.
This striking cover bears the charities centenary logo whilst a Scottish regional first class stamp ‘Scottish Lion’ will be cancelled by the uniquely numbered ‘BFPS 3235’ special handstamp.
Two versions are to be issued as follows:
- Standard version priced at £8 each.
- Limited number of 100 signed by the President of the Royal British Legion Scotland – Lieutenant General Sir Alistair Irwin KCB CBE, priced at £15 each.
Each commemorative cover will have an information insert both of which will be presented in a protective cellophane slip making a highly desirable collectable.
