The Longmoor Military Railway was a British military railway in Hampshire, built by the Royal Engineers from 1903 in order to train soldiers on railway construction and operations. In the light of the reducing role of the military and the severely reduced British Empire, it was decided by the Ministry of Defence to close the railway on the 31st October 1969.

Our cover commemorates the 50th anniversary of the closure of Longmoor Military Railway. It features a stunning black and white image of troops standing to attention at the railway station, along with a 1st class D-Day stamp and a Longmoor, Lis, Hampshire postmark.
