12th May 2020 - Florence Nightigngale
Producer/Series:   ( BFDC No 88 )
Postmark:
Derby, Shining Lamp, Special Handstamp
Notes: Lovely item with two postmarks - originally franked on 13th August 2010, the centenary of the death of Florence Nightingale. The second postmark marks the 200th anniversary of her birth on 12th May 2020. The Victorian 2d stamp is most appropriate as it was during Victoria's reign that the war took place, and Queen Victoria who instituted the Victoria Cross first awarded after the Crimea War
