The signing of the Armistice in Allied Commander General Foch's railway carriage in the Forest of Compiègne at 5am on Monday 11 November 1918 brought an end to what was then known as The Great War. The cease fire came into effect six hours later - 'the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month' - when silence fell across the battlefields of northern France and Flanders for the first time in over four years.
The 2018 World War I Prestige Booklet contains a unique pane of eight stamps, all the stamps from the stamp issues and a pane of four war poetry commemoratives 2014-2017.
The Gold 500 set illustrates the panes with contemporary images from 1918 framed by an intricate 22ct gold-blocked design. The covers are issues in a numbered limited edition of 500.
This cover features British ambulance men and women on the Western Front and carries a Poppy Mead, Ashford handstamp
