Six new stamps are to be issued on 12th October by Royal Mail to salute some of the heroes who fought in the Crimean War after Britain joined the fray 150 years ago.

The stamps feature the portraits of six undecorated soldiers who had their photographs taken by order of Queen Victoria. Stamp designer Ian Chivers discovered the portraits in a book entitled Crimean Heroes whilst researching the subject.

In addition to the stamps, a Presentation Pack, First Day Cover and six Postcards will also be made available.
