Painted exclusively for Bletchley Park Post Office by Julie Bailey this first day cover depicts London Fire Brigade fighting the fires of the World War Two Blitz on London. By slinging small pumps and firefighters on ropes over Blackfriars Bridge they were able to draw water from the River Thames whatever the tidal conditions.

The Royal Mail 'Bridges of London' stamps have been cancelled on their first day of issue by a Bletchley Park Post Office postmark that features the wartime cap badge of London Fire Brigade.

See also FDC 062 for the set.
