WIN REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY STAMPS.

IT'S Remembrance Sunday today and the Royal Mail is marking the event with a special issue of stamps.

The poignant images they bear commemorate in particular the 90th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.

From July 1 to November 21, 1916, it was the most brutal battle in UK military history.

By the time it was over, more than a million men on both sides lay dead.

The Lest We Forget miniature sheet features five stamps - a new first-class stamp featuring bright red poppies and a block of four definitive stamps representing the fallen of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

It comes in a collector's pack filled with photographs and information about the Somme.

We have TEN copies of the Lest We Forget set to be won today. Here's how YOU could be a winner.

Simply write your name, address and daytime phone number on a postcard or on the back of a sealed envelope.

Send it to Remembrance Stamps, Editor's Secretary, Sunday Mercury, Weaman Street, Birmingham B4 6AY.

The senders of the first 10 entries drawn at random will be the winners. Entries must reach us by Thursday, November 16, 2006.

Usual Sunday Mercury rules apply. There is no cash alternative. Winners' list on request.
