The Centenary of the Great War - 28 July 2014
A set of 6 stamps and a prestige stamp book were issued to mark the centenary of the First World War.
The prestige book included two panes of Machin definitives.
One pane contained 2 x 10p and 2 x 20p Machins, and one each of the 1st class country definitives. The other pane contained a single £1 brown Machin surrounded by 8 replicas of the King George V 1d red stamps. The Machins are all coded M14L MPIL.
This FDC has the three new Machin stamps cancelled with a special pictorial postmark of National Memorial Alrewas showing the King George V profgile head, on the day of issue.
