Details

First day cover for the Royal Mail Trafalgar stamp issue. Links battle of Cape Trafalgar to that of Cape Matapan in 1941. Double sided design.

Both were the greatest fleet actions of their time requiring superior intelligence to overcome a superior force.

An unusual and very collectable cover. Have a few signed by Mavis Batey who broke the Italian Naval code to make this a vital breakthrough ahead of the Allied North Africa landings.
