Royal Mail criticised for D-Day stamp mix-up

Royal Mail has withdrawn a stamp design marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day - after BBC News pointed out it showed US troops landing in what was Dutch New Guinea, nearly 8,500 miles from France.

The stamp was due to be released next year in a "Best of British" collection.

Nobody Checked ??
That is why our boffins are Baboons.
Just as daft as the dope in Government that insulted the Artic convoy sailors saying the Atlantic Medal should cover the Russian convoys.
Trouble is they walk beside us .
