The designer of the Spitfire fighter plane, Reginald Joseph Mitchell, is the hero featured on a new commemorative label that’s set to be issued by the Royal Mail. The label, designed by Roy Knipes, is included in books of stamps that will be sold at Post Offices from 16 May. A separate vended book featuring Mitchell was designed by Llewellyn Thomas. Mitchell designed 24 aircraft before dying in 1937 at the age of 42.
