CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.

Media Release 11/June/2016

World War 1 Special Issue stamps - BFPO Official First Day

Royal Mail will be issuing its next selection of World War 1 stamps on 21June 2016. The ongoing themes of Poppies, Poetry, War Art, Memorials and Artifacts form a beautiful and poignant collection that serves as a fitting way to commemorate this tragic conflict. Accompanying this issue will be the First World War Minisheet entitled ‘The Post Office at War 1914 -18’.

The Forces Philatelic Bureau will be producing three BFPO official first day covers to compliment this stamp issue.

Two of the covers will bear original artwork silhouetting a typical wartime scene. One of these covers will be serviced using a full set of stamps, whilst the other will use the three 1st class stamps only. The third cover will be the BFPO Tri-Service generic FDC and will bear the Minisheet.

All three covers will be franked by the new ‘Philatelic Forces Bureau First Day of Issue special handstamp BFPO 707’.

The covers may be ordered from the BFPS online shop (www.bfps.org.uk/shop). They cost £15 for the full issue version, £6 for the half issue version and £8 for the Minisheet (UK/BFPO p&p free).

You can also order the covers by post by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS The Old Post Office Links Place Elie Fife KY9 1AX.
