On 16 July 2015 Royal Mail will issue a 6-stamp miniature sheet to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. I think a set of stamps would have been better as they would have been more likely to see general use. A retail booklet would also have been good, but we have what we have.
The 18 August 2015 issue does include a retail booklet and a set of 6 attractive stamps showing Bees of Britain, but also a less attractive miniature sheet, devoted to the habits of the Honeybee.
Full details of both issues - including some special postmarks for the Battle of Britain - are now on our website.
