Royal Mail Launches New Stamps at Tangmere

The Royal Mail chose the Museum as the Southern launch venue for its new range of postage stamps commemorating RAF uniforms. The set of 6 stamps – three first class and three 81p stamps – show a selection of uniforms covering the period from the RAF’s start in 1918 to the current day. Museum Chairman Gp Capt David Baron OBE is shown holding a picture of the stamp depicting the flying uniform of a Hunter pilot in the 50s and 60s, exactly the same uniform David wore as a Hunter pilot early in his career. These stamps went on sale on September 18th.
