Stamps show history of Army battledress

Breaking News

The rich history of Army uniforms will be celebrated in a new set of Royal Mail stamps to go on sale.

om the flamboyance of a 17th-century cavalryman to the familiar camouflage of the modern-day soldier, the set shows almost 350 years of Army history.

The stamps, which go on sale on Thursday, are the first in a series of three issues on a military theme. The Army set will be followed by RAF uniforms next year and Royal Navy uniforms in 2009.
