The Miniature Sheet, In Remembrance: End of the Second World War.
A commemorative keepsake focusing on memorials honouring servicemen and women who gave their lives to serve their country, as well as victims of the Holocaust.
Personalised with the postmark, name and address of your choice.
This commemorative Miniature Sheet focuses on memorials honouring servicemen and women who gave their lives to serve their country, as well as victims of the Holocaust.
Four stamps feature memorials in Jerusalem and Rangoon, as well as Runnymede and Plymouth in the UK, on a Miniature Sheet carrier bearing the title in stone carved lettering.
The 8 May 2020 postmark represents the day, exactly 75 years ago, that the Allies formally accepted the surrender of Nazi Germany’s armed forces.
London, SW1 has been chosen as the alternative postmark location in reference to Buckingham Palace, where the iconic VE balcony photograph was taken, and Downing Street, where Winston Churchill delivered his radio broadcast announcing the end of the war.
Two First Class and two £1.63 stamps.
First Class Yad Vashem, Jerusalem Israel’s
First Class Runnymede Memorial, UK
£1.63 Plymouth Naval Memorial, UK
£1.63 Rangoon Memorial, Myanmar
As a result of Covid-19 and the restrictions that were placed on individuals’ movements, Royal Mail took the decision at the end of March to extend its postmarking facilities for all Special Stamp issues until further notice. We promised that we would announce at the appropriate time when this extension would end and give customers sufficient notice of the cut-off period for accepting covers retrospectively. With these restrictions now being gradually eased throughout the UK we will revert to the normal postmarking rules from Thursday, 1st October. This means that the End of the Second World War First Day Covers will come off sale at midnight on that day.
