The first premium-priced Commemorative Sheet of 2015 commemorates the Post Office Rifles on the centenary of their arrival in France on 18th March 1915. Royal Mail will sell it for £14.95.
It documents their bravery, tenacity and character during their time in the trenches on the Western Front which earned the regiment high praise and a prestigious place in British military history. Each sheet is complemented by a backing card telling the story of the Rifles from formation and early campaigns through to their involvement as infantry in the First World War. It also contains a reproduction of the regimental recruitment poster from May 1915.
Two special postmarks have been announced in conjunction with this sheet, both available from the London Special Handstamp Centre, 13372 - London, 13373 Cuckfield Haywards Heath
