The Channel Tunnel is to be featured on a postage stamp in Britain.
Issued by the Royal Mail the stamp forms part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The special commemorative Channel Tunnel stamp has a face value of £1.00 and celebrates the historic linking of our two nations in May 1994 when the Channel Tunnel first began operations.
Says Jacques Gounon, CEO, Eurotunnel, ‘It is a great honour for us to see the Channel Tunnel on a British stamp. This is recognition of the magnificent feat of engineering that was the building of the Channel Tunnel and of the enormous impact the Tunnel has had on travel and trade for the United Kingdom over the past 18 years.’
