The Second World War
"Thank you for your excellent service and superb covers. Special thanks to the very efficient, most helpful staff" Mr Jones of Chester, collector
We were proud to mark the 60th Anniversary of D-Day and VE Day with a moving range of covers, many signed by the heroes and heroines of World War II. We have also created a range celebrating 617 Squadron, RAF, "The Dambusters", also signed by the men who were there.
These covers are in a class of their own. The sheer work and organisation involved was staggering. Tony Buckingham made the 25th anniversary collection a personal labour of love. Every big name from the Falklands conflict signed: top brass, politicians, medal winners. The project raised an incredible £35,000 for the Falklands Island Memorial Chapel.
Spitfire, Vulcan Bomber and RAF
We've created superb covers and sheets marking the planes and heroes of the RAF. Many are available personally signed by the brave men who flew during World War II. And many have been flown as well.
The Battle of Trafalgar
Admiral Horatio Nelson entered British history forever after winning the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The breathtaking victory made Britain master of the waves for over 100 years.
But Nelson paid for the victory with his life.
We were delighted to produce an official range of covers with HMS Victory, Nelson's ship. More recently, we've also created a stamp sheet and coin cover in tribute to Nelson.
We've raised over 10,000 for the Victoria and George Cross Association with the help of every single surviving winner of the VC, who have signed our covers. The Victoria Cross is the highest award for gallantry.
We want to BUY

Missed Out? Don't Despair!
Many of our military covers and sheets are sold out, especially ones from the Falklands collection. We run waiting lists for collectors who missed out.
You are welcome to join waiting lists for any sold out covers. This is how it works: when you are first on the list, we give you first refusal when the cover you want comes up. We let you know the price then. You are not committed to buy it.
To join a waiting list, just order the product you want as usual through the website. Chose "pay in my regular way" at the checkout (so you don't need to give card details). We'll be back in touch to confirm you're on the waiting list.
