Product Description
Testimonials
  • This special envelope presents the memorials sheetlet which contains the set of six stamps from the Battle of the Somme collection which feature evocative period images recalling the horrors of the battle of attrition on the Western Front during World War I. Inspired by the fighting on the Somme, the collection traces the fast-paced development of warfare in these horrendous conditions, and remembers those who were the lost – 'the missing of the Somme'.

    The envelope contains a filler card which brings the images on the stamps to life with evocative text.

    This exquisitely detailed sheetlet on the envelope also showcases the following memorials from across the world:

    • The Ulster Tower, the World War I memorial to the 36th Ulster Division;
    • The Australian Cemetery in the Vallee de la Somme, France;
    • The Canadian National Vimy Ridge memorial;
    • The New Zealand memorial at Longueval;
    • The 51st Highland Division memorial at Beaumont-Hamel
    • The Red Dragon memorial to the 38th Division at Mametz.
