Radio Society of Great Britain Centenary 2013

A commemorative cover is being issued on 5th July to mark the Centenary of the Radio Society of Great Britain, the body that represents Britain’s radio amateurs.

The cover being released through Bletchley Stamp Art features the Duke of Edinburgh against a montage of vintage and modern images. The stamp is Royal Mail’s “Station X” with a Bletchley Park Post Office cachet. This bears the early code number for Fenny Stratford post office and the undercover PO Box 111 address for Bletchley Park.

The newly restored RSGB ‘hut’ at Bletchley Park provides the link to the cover design and stamp choice. The exhibit offers visitors a fascinating insight into the world of radio.

Only 250 covers are being issued and a limited number are available to non RSGB members at £14.99 plus post and packing. They can be viewed and ordered through the website at or by calling 01908 363489.
