Just two matched number limited edition sets available. That these were issued from Bletchley Park has added significance. Each cover depicts Alan Turing at Bletchley Park Post Office as an Olympic Torch Bearer.

The artwork is exclusive to these covers and depicts Turing in running kit followed by computer boffins as the link to his pioneering work in computing.
