All,

Further cover coming soon from the British Forces Philatelic Service.

70th Anniversary of The Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps Association

The Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) nurses have worked at the sharp end of military life throughout the last century of military nursing. The QARANC Association was founded in 1947 by Dame Louisa Wilkinson DBE RRC and gives support and friendship to all who are serving or have served in the Corps.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Association the BFPS, in conjunction with the QARANC Association, has produced a commemorative cover to be released on the 1st December 2017.

A special handstamp BFPS 3212 featuring the QARANC's badge will cancel a personalised Smiler©stamp which bears the Tactical Recognition Flash of the Corps. A collage of images on the cover reflect the bond shared between the Associations' members.

These superb covers may be ordered from the BFPS online shop (www.bfps.org.uk/shop) at a cost of just £7.50. A limited edition double-signed version, bearing the signatures of both the Colonel Commandant and Chief Nursing Officer (who are, respectively, Chair and President of the Association), will also be available at £15.

Also on offer will be a few sheets of the personalised Smiler© stamps used on the cover, priced at £38 each.

The covers and stamp sheets may be ordered through the BFPS shop from around mid November 2017 or by post by sending a cheque payable to 'BFPS CIC' to BFPS The Old Post Office Links Place Elie LEVEN KY9 1AX.
