This was the first cover in a new series, celebrating Britain. Our cover commemorates St Andrew’s Day - and is postmarked with a thistle!
We are delighted that a few covers have been personally signed by Alistair Bruce of Crionaich.
Alistair is the direct descendant of Robert the Bruce, the heroic King of Scots who secured Scotland's independence from England.
Alistair Bruce himself is an amazing man and a credit to Scotland (and Great Britain!).
He was commissioned into the Scots Guards, where his duties have included: a term as Equerry to Her Majesty's Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly in Scotland (Lord Elgin), peace keeping duties in Northern Ireland (1980) and active service during the Falkland Islands in 1982.
An esteemed documentary maker, broadcaster and writer, Bruce is also the National Event Commentator for Sky News and the BBC.
