Latest offering coming soon from the British Forces Philatelic Service.

Ice Maiden Expedition Across Antarctica

The Ice Maiden team, all women soldiers serving in the British Army or Army Reserve, have made history by becoming the first all-female team to use muscle power alone to ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica. Unsupported, and with only two resupply points along the route, they carried all the supplies and equipment needed to survive for up to 600km at a time. The team took 62 days on the ice and finally crossed the finish line on the 19 Jan 2018.

BFPS has produced a commemorative cover to mark this historic crossing to be released on the 1 February 2018.

The cover bears an image of the expedition with its route marked in red. A special handstamp, BFPS 3213 featuring a silhouette of an "Ice Maiden", will be used to cancel a personalised Smiler® stamp which bears an image of the Ice Maiden team at the South Pole.

Versions of the cover include:

  • Standard version costing £7.50 each.
  • Limited special edition that has been 'carried on the expedition' costing £20 each.

Also available will be a few sheets of the personalised Smiler® stamps (20 per sheet) used on the cover, priced at £38 per sheet (whilst stocks last - limited numbers available).

Further to the above posting.

Presentation

An information insert will be included with each cover and this and the cover will be presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir to mark this historic crossing.

You can 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.


Please Note: that it will take some time for the 'Carried Covers' to arrive back at BFPS from the expedition. We ask for your patience when ordering these covers as you will not receive them straight away after the publication date. This also applies to standard covers and stamp sheets ordered with 'Carried Covers'. We will endeavour to keep you posted on the BFPS website and media.
