Description

On the 14th June 1982 British Armed Forces freed the Falkland Islands from the invading Argentinians following 74 days of intense fighting. This day became known as ‘Liberation Day’ and is celebrated each year by the Islanders. This year sees the 40th Anniversary of ‘Liberation Day’ and to mark this BFPS will be publishing a commemorative cover to be issued on the 14th June 2022.

The Falkland Islands have commissioned a special logo for their celebrations this year and they have kindly given BFPS permission to use the logo on the commemorative cover. The specially designed handstamp bearing the BFPS 3239 serial number will be used to cancel a first class commemorative stamp.

Two versions of the cover will be available:

  • Standard unsigned version (£8).
  • Numbered limited edition of just 74 (£16) signed by former RAF and Royal Navy pilot David Morgan who flew Harriers during the Falklands War.

All covers include an information insert and will be presented in a protective cellophane sleeve making a very collectable souvenir of the 40th Liberation anniversary.
