RAF & Liberation of Western Europe

Nick Colley

The following is based on the contribution I made to the 50th Anniversary display we had at Spring Stampex in 2002. It has been added to somewhat, since then, and this is the augmented version. It presents examples of mail from the RAF (and Allies) during this campaign, looking initially at units initially in the UK, and, later, on the continent. There are two examples from the Fleet Air Arm serving under RAF command, and one or two examples of redirected mail addressed INTO the RAF during this period. It concludes with examples of mail from Denmark and Norway, after the cessation of hostilities.
