Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity - Inaugural Heroes Challenge

2019 sees the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of Normandy. Over the year there have been many events to honour and remember this bloody but courageous moment in our history. One such event is the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity (RN&RMC) and BAE Systems Heroes Challenge 2019. Held between the 18th and 24th September this will be a cycling event from London to Paris via the Normandy Landings, remembering D-Day in the process.

In collaboration with the RN&RMC, BFPS will be producing the official Heroes Challenge 2019 commemorative cover to be issued on the 19th September 2019.

The images on the cover portray the cyclists taking part in the Challenge. A 1st Class stamp featuring HMS Warspite pounding enemy positions in support of the beach landings will be cancelled by the BFPS 3223 handstamp designed especially for this event.

The following versions of the commemorative cover will be available:

  • Standard unsigned costing just £7.50 each.
  • Numbered limited edition of 50 covers costing £15 each - signed by Commodore Craig Wood, Commander Portsmouth Flotilla, who is participating in the Challenge.

Profits from these covers will be donated to the RN&RMC.

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.
