Great Britain, Scott's catalog # 605, 4p gold & multicolored, 1969 Christmas, Town Cancel: Bognor Regis, Sussex This stamp is without flaws, free of damage, and has a nice town cancel from Bognor Regis.
Note: Bognor Regis, County West Sussex, England, Great Britain. Bognor Regis is a resort town in southern West Sussex, located on the southern England coast.
Bognor Regis is a seaside resort town and civil parish in the Arun district of West Sussex, on the south coast of England.
Tourism gradually took off in Bognor during the 19th century, with the area being chosen as an ideal location for King George V to convalesce during 1929, the King and Queen actually staying at Craigwell House in Aldwick.
As a result, the King was asked to bestow the suffix "Regis" ("of the King") on "Bognor". The petition was presented to Lord Stamfordham, the King's Private Secretary, who in turn delivered it to the King. King George supposedly replied, "Oh, bugger Bognor." Lord Stamfordham then went back to the petitioners and told them, "the King has been graciously pleased to grant your request."
