£30.00 inc. VAT
Product Code: SB43
An essential for collectors, this very special folder is an important commemoration of the centenary of the start of the 'Great War', as well as a fascinating glimpse into life in those famous front line trenches.
They were places of fear, hardship and horror, but also of extraordinary bravery, and this folder recognises these aspects of the 'war to end all wars'.
The folder itself features archive black and white photos showcasing the experiences of the troops as well as the words of Colonel Charles Wilson, who reveals more about the nature of the conflict and the progress of the First World War. Colonel Wilson is Honorary Colonel of the Isle of Man Army Cadet Force, heirs to this Manx military tradition, which includes involvement in WWI.
The folder also includes eight-stamp sheets featuring the Trench Warfare issue – a set of six stamps featuring archive photos of trench life – and the very special miniature sheet, featuring a £3 Isle of Man stamp, which draws attention to the wealth of 'trench art' produced by soldiers and civilians from the detritus of the battlefield.
The wonderful collection, which comes with free worldwide delivery, is something Isle of Man Post Office is very proud, and an item we know all collectors will be equally proud to own.
