Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Parade ‘Trooping the Colour’ takes place on the 17 Jun 2017 and The British Forces Philatelic Service, in partnership with the Household Division Charity, has produced a commemorative cover to mark the event.

This year it is the turn of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, who will be ‘Trooping The Colour’ at 10am from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade via the Mall.

The majestic cover produced to commemorate this year’s event bears an image of a 1st class stamp, cancelled using a unique British Forces Postal Service special handstamp No. 3204. The cancellation features the Irish Guards’ regimental capstar.

Covers may be ordered from the BFPS online shop (www.bfps.org.uk/shop). They cost just £6 for the standard version and £12 for the signed limited edition versions (UK/BFPO p&p free).

They can also be ordered by posting by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS, The Old Post Office Links Place, Elie, Fife, KY9 1AX.

These covers are always popular and are available whilst stocks last.
