Description

The 100th anniversary of Remembrance Day is our final 2019 issue for Alderney and is a beautiful miniature sheet with a poppy shaped stamp.

Letters and poems from WW1 soldiers sent back from the trenches make up the background design.

The French and Belgian countryside was devastated by the mechanics of the First World War but with their seeds exposed by the fighting, resilient red poppies fought back and thrived in the churned-up landscape, growing in their thousands on the battlefields of Flanders.

Many soldiers fighting on the Frontline wrote about the poppies in their letters home to loved ones.
