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.
Love the new Royal Mail D-Day stamps. pic.twitter.com/kyIy1VjJNr
Perhaps it’s just me, but something about this new D-Day stamp doesn’t look quite right. pic.twitter.com/YOTgp1oN9L
