A spectacular cover for the centenary of the Gibraltar Garrison, The Staffordshire Brigade served under Kitchener in the 2nd Sudanese War, then continued during World War I at the Garrison in Gibraltar. This scarce postal history cover bears a British WWI commemorative stamp with Lord Kitchener "Your Country Needs You" illustrated Royal Mail postmark. Unusually, the cover also bears a Gibraltar Garrison Centenary cachet in red. Only 100 covers were ever issued and many in Gibraltar collector's hands.
