StampNews.com got to know that Jersey Post has prepared for releasing the first Jersey Post & Go overprint of 2015 that is dedicated to Sir Winston Churchill.

24 January 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Winston Churchill and, to mark the occasion, Jersey flag stamps from Jersey Post's JE02 Post & Go machine will be printed with a special, commemorative overprint. The overprint which will read: Churchill 24.1.65 will be available from 24 January 2015 for one month only and the Jersey Philatelic Bureau is recommending collectors order theirs whilst stocks last.

'Winston Churchill is such an important figure in British history and we were very keen to mark this important date', comments Melanie Gouzinis, Jersey Post's Senior Philatelic Manager. 'We've seen a great deal of interest in Jersey Post & Go since its launch last year and stamp labels with special overprints like this hold particular significance'.

Mrs Gouzinis continued: 'Our JE01 Post & Go machine will be at Spring Stampex next month where we will be launching a brand new Post & Go design, enabling our collectors to further enhance their Post & Go collections'.

Post & Go is the next generation of self-adhesive stamps overprinted with the postage on demand. It represents a new and very exciting way to begin or enhance a Jersey stamp collection.
