Bulletin No. 58, Cyphers & Symbols
As the nation prepares for the Coronation of Charles III we are delighted to present a number of pieces with illustrious royal provenance here in our latest bulletin. The sovereign’s cyphers and symbols will be in pride of place at home and overseas over the coming weeks and we are pleased to be able to offer a wide selection of Royal presentation gifts and artefacts. The British armed forces will play a central role in the Coronation festivities, so we must also add that our usual range of historic and historical military items are well represented among the 140 or so new additions on the website and in the shop.
