Post & Go Cover News: Special Shetland Bus Postmark Covers
You can learn more about the clandestine Shetland Bus WWII operation in our original postmark article but, for those readers interested in the postmark use, here's an image of the cover we produced at the time:
As you can see, the stamp we chose to use features the Gannet, a coastal bird seen around the Shetlands, which came from the Post & Go Birds IV issue. We also added a genuine Royal Mail Horizon Label that we overprinted with details of the event.
If you're interested in acquiring a cover then, at the time of writing, we are selling the spares online. Unfortunately we only produced six of these covers but, if any remain for sale, they will be listed on this eBay page.
