The Royal Air Force, founded on 1st April 1918, was the world's largest air force with over 5,000 aircraft, and also the first ever independent air force.90 years on, we celebrate the RAF and all that we owe to those brave men and women who have served in it, with a sensational stamp sheet.

This superb sheet features 11 different paintings of historic RAF aircraft by the great war artist, Frank Wootton. The copyright fees for these were donated to the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust by his widow, Mrs Ginny Wooton, raising considerable money for the Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel Le Ferne.

What are stamp sheets?

A stamp sheet is around A4 size and contains 10 first class stamps (the Union Jack flag stamps in this stamp sheet being an example) contained in a special design. The stamps are valid for postage, but you don't want to be ripping this up! Most people collect sheets in an album although some of them frame them for the wall.

Tony Iveson was born and raised in Yorkshire and learned to fly in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve before the war. In 1940, he flew with 616 Fighter Squadron, Fighter Command and survived ditching a Spitfire in the North Sea after a combat with a Junkers 88. After qualifying at the RAF's Central Flying School in 1941, he went on to be a flying instructor in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. On returning to Britain, he was directed to Bomber Command and was posted to No.617 "Dam Busters" Squadron in 1944 flying Lancasters. He was later appointed a Flight Commander. Amongst other operations, he flew on all 3 attacks that the Squadron made on the German battleship "Tirpitz". He retired from the RAF in 1949.
