Last year when Royal Mail gave out details of the 2009 program, it was mentioned that no less than 4 Prestige booklets were to released.
Two have been issued in 2009 to date: the first was Design Classics PB on the 23th January retail cost on day of issue £7.40p: PB Number two "Darwin" came just after on 12th February costing £7.55p.
We were informed that a third was in the pipeline: This was to be named Treasures of the Archives, the release date wrongly given at the time was "May 2009".
Updated or new information has come my way that this treasure of the Archive is still the theme of a Prestige Book now to be issued 18th August 2009. The book will be produced by Walsall in Litho.
A forth, which will be a follow on to the Prestige Booklets in the forces uniforms series will be known as number three in this uniform series and will be issued on 17th September 2009.
The first in the series covered Army uniforms, the second Air Force uniforms and this latest depicts uniforms of the Royal Navy.
This booklet will also be produced by Walsall in litho.
