Railways #9 – A Commemorative Commemorative?

Okay, so what is one of those then, I hear you ask? Well, in our annual Label Of The Year competition, through which we raise money for charity. A commemorative label recognises a person, place, event, institution or even an animal, which has some special significance. So in my opinion the label below qualifies as the double commemorative, as it recognises the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway and the anniversary of the visit of the then Duke of York in 1926.

Or could that make it a triple commemorative?

Prince Albert, the Duke of York (later George VI), no doubt enjoyed his trip from Hythe to New Romney, back in 1926. This was the year before the RH&DR officially opened to the public. If you would like to know more then please follow this link. Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway
