JS(CC)75FDC Communication Survelliance and intelligence fullset FDC
Product may vary slightly from image representation.
JS(CC)75a RAF cover produced by ourselves in association with Betchley Park Post Office [as BPPO57].
RAF cover for Communication Surveillance and Intelligence showing Bletchley Park - Station X which played a key role during WWII and the modern day equivalent the BAe Nimrod R1 of No 51 Squadron. As the cover was designed for the jet aircraft stamps the artwork also shows a Vickers VC10 of No 101 Squadron which often refuels the Nimrod while on long-range missions.
The cover bears the full set of Royal Mail Airliners stamps. The tail section of the Vickers VC10 is shown on the 45p stamp while the Nimrod is the military version of the De Havilland Comet which is shown on the 65p stamp. The other stamps show the Airbus, Concorde and Trident airliners. The cover has been cancelled with our sponsored BFPS 2674 postmark for the 40th Anniversary of the VC10 on 2 May 2002 - the first day of issue.
Cover size 210mm x 120mm
