Covering six key themes: poppies, poetry, war art, memorials and artefacts that combine to form a beautiful and poignant collection this issue serves as a fitting way to commemorate this tragic conflict.
This stunning Great War Presentation Pack explores key events in 1918 in greater detail including: The German Spring Offensive and the Allied Counter Offensive through to the Planning for Peace, The End of Ottoman Rule and the End of the War. The postage stamps in this issue highlight the delicate richness of the poppy, rawness in a poet’s heart, the officer who fought on two fronts, an artist’s bleak depiction of Ypres, a tomb that became a focal point for national grief and the unbroken goggles of a downed combat pilot.
