Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today we are looking at the Linn’s Stamp News very informative article on Great Britain’s Royal Mail Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day with 11 stamps along with ordering information. “Six of the stamps are in three vertical se-tenant pairs. The other five are in a souvenir sheet that focuses on the five beaches.”

Furthermore, I’m including, in case you missed the story Linn’s was running last week on Where is the U.S. D-Day 75h anniversary stamp? 

Great Britain’s Royal Mail Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day

First, there is the must-read article at Linn’s on the six stamps in Great Britain issuing today and a souvenir sheet: “Britain remembers D-Day on stamps showing scenes of the WWII invasion” (June 6, 2019) by Denise McCarty.

“The stamps in Great Britain’s D-Day set reproduce black-and-white photographs of the invasion in which 156,000 Allied troops from the United States, Great Britain, Canada and 10 other countries landed on the beaches of Normandy, a region of northern France.”

Quoting Linn’s article “Great Britain’s Royal Mail commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day includes a souvenir sheet of five stamps picturing scenes related to the five assault beach areas: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.”

“Among the related products are first-day covers; 12 postcards reproducing the designs of the 11 stamps and the souvenir sheet; and a presentation pack with the stamps, the souvenir sheet and text by experts from Imperial War Museums.”

The article concludes with the detailed information on ordering them.

“To order the issued stamps and related products, visit the Royal Mail website. Ordering information also is available from Royal Mail, Tallents House, 21 S. Gyle Crescent, Edinburgh, EH12 9PB, Scotland. Royal Mail’s agency in the United States is Interpost, Box 400, Hewlett, NY 11557.”

Last week, Linn’s ran the story Linn’s on Where is the U.S. D-Day 75h anniversary stamp?

“Great Britain’s Royal Mail and a few other postal administrations are issuing stamps this year to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of German-occupied Normandy on June 6, 1944.

But the United States Postal Service, as of this writing, has not announced a stamp for the anniversary…”
