SOLD OUT During a visit to Bletchley Park, Winston Churchill called the WRNs working there "my geese that laid the golden egg but never cackled". This was in recognition of the arduous work undertaken to crack the Enigma using "Turing Bombes". It meant that the North Atlantic supply line with the USA was kept open during WW2.

One of those 'Wrens'was Jean Valetine who is still at the Park as a guide. She has now been immortalised in the D Day postage stamp on this very special cover. The Churchill portrait is exclusive to Bletchley Park Post Office. Jean has also signed each cover.

A mint 1940 'Victoria & George' postage stamp has also been added as Churchill lived and worked under both Monarchs. each stamp has been specially postmarked at Bletchley Park to create a stunning collector's item. A real lttle piece of art and history.
