The First World War 1916
The First World War claimed millions of lives, changed the course of history and transformed the lives of generations to come. This stunning issue from Royal Mail is the third in a five-year commemorative program marking the centenary of the Great War. 1916 is remembered through six key themes: Poppies, Poetry, War Art, Memorials and Artifacts. These themes form a beautiful and poignant collection commemorating this tragic conflict.
