12 October 2004 - 150th Anniversary of the Crimean War. Limited edition Norvic FDC
Royal Mail commemorates the 150th anniversary of British involvement in the Crimean War with a set of 6 stamps showing portraits of ordinary soldiers who fought in the campaigns.
Our cover shows the Crimea War memorial at Attleborough, Norfolk. There are relatively few memorials to the casualties of Crimea: most war memorials in towns and villages throughout the country commemorate the fallen of the 1914-18 and later wars.
The stamps are cancelled with the Inkerman Road, London special postmark.
