To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, Isle of Man Post Office commissioned a very special collection of stamps remembering the people who lived through 'the war to end all wars'.

Evocative photos from the First World War and the familiar red poppy adorn this important set of six stamps marking 100 years since the outbreak of the 'Great War', and remembering the human cost of the conflict.

*A DONATION OF £2.50 IS GIFTED TO THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION WITH EVERY PURCHASE OF THE SPECIAL FOLDER PRODUCT*
