This UK Christmas FDC was issued in 1988 and is a special SA cachet to commemorate the Ealing Corps Centenary. It has the full Christmas stamp set on it and is cancelled at the Philatelic counter London EC1 (Post Office next to the SA International HQ). The cover has also been issued with fewer stamps. An extra handstamp “Ealing Citadel PM, Leeland Road” is also added. An experienced UK FDC dealer remarked: “Very Scarce Cover Design. Not seen before! Pristine condition”. High estimated value due to its scarcity (£75 +).
