Royal Mail WILL honour Sir Nicholas Winton
The Royal Mail will produce a special stamp to honour Sir Nicholas Winton after a campaign by the Jewish News attracted more than 100,000 supporters.
The stamp will be issued next year after Royal Mail bosses expedited the process of considering our call among the hundreds of suggestions for subjects received every year.
Sir Nicholas, who passed away last month, arranged for 669 unaccompanied children to flee Czechoslovakia for the safety of the UK and later organised foster families for many of the youngsters. He didn’t speak about his heroic actions for half a century.
