Royal Mail Apologises After D-Day Stamp Error
It is after a stamp designed to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings used a picture of US troops landing in Dutch New Guinea.
The stamp, which had been labelled “Allied soldiers and medics wade ashore”, will now not be printed as part of the final set (Picture: PA).
Royal Mail has apologised after a stamp design from a “Best of British” collection depicted US personnel landing in Dutch New Guinea, instead of the D-Day landings at Normandy.
The stamp, which had been previewed with the caption “Allied soldiers and medics wade ashore”, will no longer be printed as part of the final set.
