Remembrance stamps: The National Memorial Arboretum Commemorative sheet
NMA Remeberance stamp set
A new set of poppy-themed commemorative stamps paying tribute to all those who have served in the Armed Forces has been issued to raise money for the National Memorial Arboretum.
Royal Mail has produced a sheet of 10 first-class stamps, featuring images of the memorial site in Staffordshire, for Remembrance Day. At the heart of the arboretum is the Armed Forces Memorial, which honours the 16,000 British service personnel who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorism since the Second World War.
One of the stamps features an image of a cast bronze Polish army officer's four-cornered rogatywka cap from the Polish defensive campaign of September 1939. which is part the Polish Armed Forces Memorial.

It is hoped the money raised from the sale of this collectors' stamp set will help pay for a Veterans’ Pavilion for military units and ex-servicemen to use at the site, and it will also help to expand the arboretum’s educational work.
Prince William is a patron of the £8million National Memorial Arboretum Appeal, set up to maintain the centre of remembrance. The stamps are available from main post offices, by mail order and at the arboretum.
The stamps are also available online from Royal Mail
