A set of five stamps, shown here as PHQ stamp cards, was issued in 1986 to mark the reorganisation of the Royal Air Force. They were designed by Brian Sanders and show:
17p - Lord Dowding, with a Hurricane
22p - Lord Tedder, with a Typhoon
29p - Lord Trenchard, with a De Havilland DH/9A
31p - Sir Arthur Harris, with a Lancaster
34p - Lord Portal, with a Mosquito
Two days after the anniversary of D-Day, it seemed an appropriate set to show though the truth is I was all ready to post about next week's theme of fairs etc. and had to do some fast thinking. At least I am prepared well in advance for next time.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
