Sold Out - Trooping The Colour - HM The Queen's Birthday Parade 2016

The iconic image is from a poster commissioned especially for the Household Division Charity. The cover features a 1st Class stamp from the 'HM The Queen's 90th Birthday' issue, cancelled using the unique BFPS special handstamp No 3198. The Colour will be trooped by No 7 Company, Coldstream Guards and both the cancellation and cover features their Regimental Capstar. 

The cover comes complete with an A4 double-sided insert in full colour with an introduction by the GOC Household Division and giving the origin of Trooping the Colour. Both are presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir of Her Majesty The Queen's Birthday Parade.
