British Armed Forces Special Vouchers (Operation Musketeer)
Contributed by Andrew M Clark
The 3rd Series British Armed Forces Special Vouchers were only ever issued for use by our Service men involved in Operation Musketeer.
The 2/6d and 5/- values are rare (I do not have them.) and the 3d and 6d values are scarce, especially in the higher grades, as mine are. The 1/- and 10/- values are uncommon if cancelled with two 6mm holes, but scarce without the this cancellation. The £1 value is common, but I have yet to find one with the E/3 cipher, only three ciphers were used (E/1, E/2 & E/3).
