The Great War, 1915 – Royal Mail First Day Cover

The latest Royal Mail First Day Cover is dedicated to the Great War, 1915. Six stamps are part of this new cover. World War 1 - dubbed The Great War - was a defining point in world history and this series will explore stories from the individuals who served as well as key art and poetry from the years. Stamps will be issued every year until 2018 inclusive, building into a unique series that will provide an insight into the war and the contribution and sacrifice of millions.

The Great War changed the course of world history in ways which are still being felt today. The objective of these stamps are to commemorate all those who were involved in this Great War, which affected the whole world, future politics, relations and history in general.
