The Channel Tunnel opened on 6 May 1994, three days later than the issue of stamps by the Royal Mail to mark the event. Pictured here, as usual, are the PHQ cards issued at the same time.
It was also about 9 months too late for us as a family because we had returned to England after 3 years in Paris. However it remains absolutely my favourite way of crossing the Channel, fast and painless, and most importantly it never gets rough.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
