Military vehicles have been part of island life since the start, in 1940, of the five year military occupation of Jersey by the German army. At the end of WWII, many of the vehicles were left behind and other British military vehicles were brought to the Island to be used by local firms of builders and such like. Around 1960, various Jersey locals became interested in these old military vehicles and, to this day, Jersey is home to many collectors of military vehicles who restore them, enjoy driving them around the Island and take part at local events to encourage awareness as well as raising money for war-related charities.
First issued in 2013, the stamps and prestige booklet were issued to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the charity Holidays for Heroes Jersey (H4HJ). The charity was formed in 2008 by Dawn Woodhouse MBE and her husband Richard, to respond to the respite needs of those injured by their military service, allowing them to benefit from the holiday facitilites that Jersey has to offer.
Our Military Vehicles Prestige Booklet is available for less than half price until 30 June 2017.
