On the 2nd of September 2021 the Royal Mail will be issuing a set of 8 stamps entitled ‘British Army Vehicles’. These stamps feature stunning paintings of iconic British Army Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV’s) since the First World War and are accompanied by a 4-stamp mini-sheet with photographs of vehicles currently in service.
BFPS will have for sale a numbered limited edition of 50 of each of the Royal Mail first day covers bearing the stamp set and the miniature sheet which will be cancelled by the exclusive ‘Forces Philatelic Bureau First Day of Issue’ special handstamp.
The stamp set first day cover will cost £20 each whilst the mini-sheet first day cover will cost £10 each. BFPS is a non-profit company and surplus from these covers after running costs will be donated to Military related charities.
Each first day cover comes with a Royal Mail information insert.
