A special commemorative envelope, limited to 1,000 copies, was recently jointly issued by Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey and Gibraltar on to mark 100 years since the signing of the Armistice Treaty.
Issued on 11 November, the cover features one stamp from each of the postal administrations’ First World War issues released in recent times to commemorate 100 years of the Great War.
The stamps, which are cancelled with the date ‘11.11.18’, are affixed to a specially designed envelope entitled ‘Remembering the Sacrifices of our Men and Women in WWI – Gibraltar, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey Remembers’.
A card inserted into the envelope tells the story of each of the stamps which are as follows:

- Guernsey Remembers: Guernsey’s war-time volunteers (originally issued on 11 November 2014)
- Isle of Man Remembers: The ANZAC Memorials of Rayner Hoff (originally issued on 4 August 2018)
