This issue is due out on 5 June. Can anyone point me to the order page on the Royal Mail site as, with only about 4 weeks to go, I can't track it down.
Many thanks.

Is it maybe a bit early yet, I have had a quick search but I don't really use the web-site as in my view it is probably one of the worst postal services websites in the postal world.

I tend to ring up the Philatelic Bureau if I am searching for something in particular.

Thanks for looking. Their site's certainly pretty useless. I was hoping to find a full list of what will be available in case I need to get an additional order in - over and above my standing order - before anything sells out (like it did recently for some special Bowie sheets). Wishful thinking!

Many thanks but that doesn't seem to include the June 2017 issue I am interested in.

Apparently the Machin anniversary stamps are still under embargo??
Why have a embargo at at all when first day cover producers give us all the information on the issue??

Sorry state of affairs R.M get your act together.

The best advice is wait until the release date and order them off the Royal mail site on eBay.

Unbelievable. Or maybe not!

Thanks for your reply Roy. I'll keep an eye on the Royal Mail site. I already have a standing order for commems and defins. I'm just concerned that they'll slip in something "special" like they did with the David Bowie collectors sheets which aren't included in the standing order and I only spotted just before they all sold out.

I spoke to Royal Mail over a week ago and was told that they were unable to take phone orders until 22 May - 2 weeks before the issue date - when the items would be listed on the web site. Still waiting ...

Hi Dave, Many thanks, that's the one. I'm sure it wasn't there earlier!
Cheers, Steve
