First Day Cover

Royal Horticultural Society 1st NVI on official first day envelope produced by ABC-FDC, for the Reunion of the Descendants of the 1924 Everest Expedition Team.

The envelopes also bears a 2003 Extreme Endeavours 1st NVI (Everest Team). Both stamps are cancelled with the Summit Way, London N14 postmark, sponsored by ABC-FDC, commemorating the 80th Anniversary of Captain John Noel's Postcard and Label.

The cover is preprinted with 4 vignettes in 'label' form featuring images taken by Capt. Noel, together with a revised version of the 1924 label. All images were used with kind permission of the John Noel Photographic Collection. The vignettes are 'cancelled' with the special Rongbuk cachet also produced for the anniversary.

These envelopes were specifically produced as souvenirs for guests at the Reunion.
