Royal Mail in stamp blunder after confusing D-day beaches with Indonesia

Commemorative stamp, which depicted US troops landing in Indonesia, is being re-designed

Royal Mail has apologised and announced it will re-design a commemorative D-day stamp which depicts US troops in Indonesia, rather than the allied D-day landings in France.

The special stamp was planned as part of a Best of British series to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-day landings in Normandy during the second world war.

We sincerely apologise that our 2019 Special Stamp preview included a design which had been incorrectly associated with the D-Day landings.

This stamp design has not been printed. We would like to reassure our customers that this image will not be part of the final set.
