The Operations Room at Bentley Priory features in the Royal Mail’s new commemorative stamps for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
The six special stamps will be available to buy from 16 July from 8,000 Post Office branches, online at www.royalmail.com/battleofbritain and by calling 03457 641 641.
Andrew Hammond, the Director of Stamps and Collectibles at Royal Mail highlighted the importance of the new stamps which ‘pay tribute to the men and women who helped protect Great Britain from the formidable threat of the Luftwaffe 75 years ago. It is fitting that these stamps will help us remember the debt that we will forever owe them”.
The Royal Mail will also mark the anniversary with a special postmark on all stamped UK mail between 16 and 18 July, reading ’75th Anniversary Battle of Britain’ and will have Royal Mail vans with the images on near to RAF bases.
