A SET of ten stamps is being issued to highlight the wide range of important work done by women during World War II.
Frontline nurses are among the celebrated, as are code breakers and ferry pilots.
Included is a rare photograph showing female codebreakers working at Bletchley, where they operated the complex cryptographic machinery.
A further four stamps, presented in a miniature sheet, depict the valiant work of the Air Transport Auxiliary ferry pilots – known as the Spitfire Women.
Royal Mail’s David Gold said: “These stamps pay tribute to the millions of women who contributed to the war effort and Allied victory.
“Her bravery and sacrifice are often overlooked, but her work helped drive some of the post-war social changes that eventually led to equal opportunity and equal pay legislation.
“We must also remember the women who supported the war effort at home and ran the household despite the incessant demands of all-out war.”
