UK – Salvation Army slogan PM – update

I’ve obtained a few more of the Salvation Army meter mark covers. The international HQ  used this meter mark as an addon on quite a few Christmas FDCs. The local post office next to the HQ is London E.C. which is the PM used on the meter mark.

1965 – UK – Holmes Tolley FDCs

The Salvation Army Centenary stamps in the UK (and the world) was issued 09 August 1965. The cachet maker Holmes Tolley made a special designed cover with a Salvationists / banner – illustration to the issue.  Covers with 4 blocks are not often seen, at least with this rare cover design!

The Plilatelic Club Royal Air Force, Bruggen have issued FDCs in quite limited editions, some as small as 17 – 25 pieces per issue. Their Salvation Army FDC from 1965 was issued in a limited number of 50!! It has the characteristic Field Post Office Bruggen PM.  No. 5 in the serie was sold in May 2020 for £141, i.e. a very attractive issue. The pictured cover is number 1!!! Estimated value £150++
