A tribute to the Spanish Navy.

Philately and the Armed Forces have always gone hand in hand, which is why this year Correos wanted to strengthen the relationship by issuing a book paying tribute to the three branches of the armed forces to promote and spread military values.

This book, divided into three volumes of 136 pages each, tells the story of each branch of the armed forces through stamps. The volume dedicated to the Army is written by Lieutenant Colonel Julio Peñas Artero, who is also a recognised stamp collector. Naval Captain Marcelino González collaborated on the volume dedicated to the Navy. Finally, General Federico Yaniz tells of aeronautical feats and stories from the world of military aviation in the volume dedicated to the Air Force . The prologue is written by the Chief of the Defence  Staff, and each volume includes an illustration of King Felipe VI in the corresponding uniform.

This work of art for stamp collectors, fans of the Armed Forces or anyone who wants to learn about the military through stamps, comes with a shrink-wrapped case for optimum conservation.

The book was presented on 12th October, to celebrate Hispanic Day, at the 55th Exfilna Fair which was held this year in Portugalete. Two versions of the book will go on sale. 500 copies of the book with stamps and 500 copies without stamps (with reproductions only). There are 15 stamps representing each branch of the armed forces:
