100 Years of British Military Dental Surgery

The Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC) is a specialist corps in the British Army that provides dental care services to its personnel and their families in war and in peace. The Corps is part of the Army Medical Services (AMS) and celebrates it 100th birthday in January 2021.

To mark this centenary BFPS, in conjunction with Headquarters RADC, is publishing a commemorative cover to be issued on the 4th of January 2021.

Various historical images and the Corps cap badge are mounted over the Corps’ colours of green, red and blue. A bespoke Royal Mail Smiler® stamp, bearing the Corps centenary logo will be cancelled by the BFPS special handstamp, numbered 3233. The centre of which carries the silhouette of the Corps’ cap badge.

The standard edition will cost £9 whilst a numbered limited edition, signed by the Chief Dental Officer (Army), will cost £18. A very limited quantity of the bespoke Smiler® stamps used on these covers will be available to order in full sheets (of 20) at £38 and half sheets (of 10) at £20.

NAAFI - 100 Years of Service to the Services
The Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes (NAAFI) was established by the British Government in December 1920 when the Expeditionary Force Canteens (EFC) and the Navy and Army Canteen Board (NACB) were combined to run the recreational establishments needed by the Armed Forces, and to sell goods to servicemen and their families. Since then NAAFI has supported the British Forces at home and abroad, including the conflicts in The Falklands, the two Gulf Wars and Afghanistan amongst many others.

In December this year NAAFI celebrates its one hundredth birthday and to mark this BFPS has produced a commemorative cover to be issued on the 6th December 2020.

This centenary cover will feature the NAAFI centenary logo with a Royal Mail bespoke Personal Smiler stamp bearing the current NAAFI corporate logo. The stamp will be cancelled by a BFPS special handstamp carrying the unique BFPS number 3232.

The standard version of the cover will cost just £9, whilst the limited edition signed by Steve Marshall, Managing Director of NAAFI will be £18.

Presentation
All covers include an information insert telling the story of the organisation and will be presented in a protective cellophane sleeve making a very collectable souvenir of NAAFI’s Centenary.

How to order the covers

You can also order these covers via mail order by sending a cheque made out to BFPS CIC and sending it to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, Fife, KY9 1AX. Please download a Mail Order Form from our website.
